Alexander Lonquich has performed with outstanding conductors such as Abbado and Holliger and with orchestras such as the Vienna Philharmonic and Royal Philharmonic. His prize-winning recordings of works by Mozart and Schubert have received oustanding reviews.
Noskowski: Symphonic Poem, Op. 66
Symphonic Poem, Op. 66
Chopin: Piano Concerto No. 2 in F minor, Op. 21
“Lonquich has a natural sense of rubato, and delves beneath the instrument's dusky patina to produce a deep, melancholy sound.”
Awards Issue 2012
“The sound is a mellow amalgam of fortepiano and modern grand. It makes a persuasive case against those who criticise Chopin's orchestration, for here it seems ideally integrated with the score's spare string and woodwind textures. Longquich's is a beautifully considered reading, the faster decay of the piano sound and Philippe Herreweghe's light touch revealing forgotten colours and nuances at every turn.”
