The young Edvard Grieg was desperately unhappy at school, regularly suffering torment and abuse from his fellow students. But from an early age he was a highly proficient pianist, taught by his mother.

Grieg worked on a transcription of the concerto for two solo pianos, which was completed by Károly Thern . [11] The premiere recording of this version was by the British two-piano team of Anthony Goldstone and Caroline Clemmow. [12]

In 1868, Franz Liszt , who had not yet met Grieg, wrote a testimonial for him to the Norwegian Ministry of Education, which led to Grieg's obtaining a travel grant. The two men met in Rome in 1870. On Grieg's first visit, they went over Grieg's Violin Sonata No. 1, which pleased Liszt greatly. On his second visit in April, Grieg brought with him the manuscript of his Piano Concerto, which Liszt proceeded to sightread (including the orchestral arrangement). Liszt's rendition greatly impressed his audience, although Grieg gently pointed out to him that he played the first movement too quickly. Liszt also gave Grieg some advice on orchestration (for example, to give the melody of the second theme in the first movement to a solo trumpet). [16]
