I regret to say that I recently turned once again to the lyric, or perhaps should I say phyrric. Can you not rid me of this desease? The things I want to compose do not get composed, and the things I do not want to compose get composed. A vile desease!

(Griegs own descripton about his Lyric Pieces)
