Not sure those pieces are comparable with Grieg's lullaby, and Liszt's transcriptions go much further than this rather plain-faced and unpianistic setting of the lullaby. Nonetheless I am sure that something good can be made of this piece, and I am tempted to have a go at it, just for fun and to see if I am right. I am also a bit of a Grieg completist, still having vague plans (probably never to be realized), for a complete Grieg cycle, so this would sort of make sense. Is it the attached Russian score score you are playing from ? I wonder what that says on the left, if it's a dedication or
the name of a transcriber ? I have a feeling this may not be Grieg's own work, in which case I'll not bother with it.
