Grieg's Lyric pieces and Norwegian Songs and Dances

I've been armchair-traveling to Norway lately.

And of all of the things I've been exploring,
I've really enjoyed learning about and listening to Edvard Grieg's music.
I love his Lyriske Stykker (Lyric Pieces).

After listening to many different renditions, 
I stumbled upon Eva Knardahl.

Here you can listen to the entire collection.
Her playing has a joyfulness and vibrance to it that most others are lacking,
even if perhaps they're more technically correct...  

You can also listen to Eva playing the Norske Flokeviser og Danser
(Norwegian Folk Songs and Dances):
