 I'm surprised you don't like the recording, Leif-Ove is an excellent pianist.

I second that. In fact when I first read your post I was going to suggest his CD... ???

Here are the other ones I have heard:

Glenn Gould (Sony)
Mikhail Pletnev (DG)
Einar Steen Nokleberg (Naxos)

You may find this last one interesting, since Nokleberg is a professor of piano at the Hanover Musikhochschule and actually wrote a book  on Grieg's piano music and its interpretation.

Thank you all for your replies, i did go to the library and get other recordings of Andsnes and I agree he is a wonderful pianist however I just didn't like his interpretation of the Grieg.
