Sa Chen has been called “a brilliant pianist” by Emmanuel Ax. Here she performs what are probably two of the best known of all piano concertos. Her previous release on PentaTone (PTC5186355) included Rachmaninov’s Études-Tableaux; “The tone is unremittingly beautiful, she displays a wide palette of pianistic colour...” International Record Review.
Sergei Rachmaninov: Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Op. 18
I. Moderato - Allegro
II. Adagio sostenuto
III. Allegro scherzando
Edvard Grieg: Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 16
I. Allegro molto moderato
III. Allegro moderato molto e marcato
“She projects the rolling passagework and multi-layered textures of the Rachmaninov's first movement with plenty of power and sweep...Chen's well-modulated, regulation pianism does justice to the Grieg Concerto's solo part but she offers little that her recorded competitors have not done better.”
