Jean-Jacques Kantorow follows his critically acclaimed recording of music by Édouard Lalo with a second disc featuring two further works that were originally intended for Sarasate, the brief Fantaisie-ballet on themes from Lalo’s ballet Namouna, and the large-scale Concerto russe.

The Concerto russe borrows themes from two wedding songs included by Rimsky-Korsakov in his collection 100 Russian Folk Songs.

The disc closes with the Piano Concerto from 1888 – the composer’s final major work, played by Pierre-Alain Volondat.

BBC Music Magazine

October 2012

****

“Four of the five works show off Kantorow's transcendent virtuosity, but the finest is the 1888 Piano Concerto, well interpreted by Volondat.”

Gramophone Magazine

Awards Issue 2012

“The Piano Concerto...could hardly be played with greater assurance and affection than by Volondat...Kantorow's brilliance evokes memories of Sarasate himself. The recordings are exemplary in sound and balance.”

The Guardian

9th August 2012

****

“Edouard Lalo's music is rarely played now, so this album is a welcome addition to his discography...Pierre-Alain Volondat is the heavyweight soloist in the Piano Concerto, Kees Bakels the energetic conductor.”
