Schumann & Chopin: Piano Concertos by expanium


“A very rewarding listen, with beautiful touch from Louis Lortie. Neeme Järvi controls a halo of whisper-soft strings in the Chopin.” –BBC Music Magazine, October 2010 – Performance **** Recording *****

“…Louis lortie captures the full measure of the Schumann Piano Concerto…” “All in all, this is a fine Schumann Concerto performance…” “The Chopin 2nd… also draws a fine performance from Lortie and Jarvi.” “The sound in both concertos is excellent. Recommended.” – – July 2010

The popular coupling of Schumann’s Piano Concerto in A minor and Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in F minor, Op. 21, featuring Louis Lortie as the soloist, is here re-issued on Chandos Classics.

On the original release, CD Review wrote of the performance of Schumann’s Concerto: ‘…his playing is thrillingly imaginative and I cannot recall ever having heard the Finale sound so physically exciting as it does here.’ About the performance of Chopin’s F minor Concerto, the reviewer noted: ‘Lortie produces a scintillating reading which resounds in the mind long after the music has ceased.’
