(Excerpts)

(Orchestration: Maurice Ravel)


“This sparkling concert in the Gewandhaus is… one of the more imaginative events that last year marked the 150th anniversary of Schumann's death. The Symphony… is…proof of the rapport that Chailly has established as the orchestra's music director. The icing on the cake is the great Martha Argerich in one of her signature pieces. Throughout, her dialogue with the orchestra truly reflects the piano's role as first among equals. Not to be missed...” Gramophone Magazine, July 2007

Grieg:

Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 16

Schumann:

Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 54


“It was the Grieg Concerto that first made the name of Leif Ove Andsnes on disc in 1990. The interpretation remains broadly the same, except that speeds are now rather brisker. However many times he's performed the Grieg, Andsnes retains a freshness and expressiveness that always sounds spontaneous.
That inspirational quality is more markedly perceptible with the new version's faster tempos, but the expressive flights remain just as broad. In that contrast, he's firmly supported by Jansons and the Berlin Philharmonic, with playing not just refined but dramatic too in fiercely exciting tuttis. Schumann's cello melodies are gloriously warm, with textures in both works admirably clear, and Andsnes fully responds to Schumann's espressivo and ritardando requests.
Though both Stephen Kovacevich and Murray Perahia are equally spontaneous, they tend not to be quite so free in their expressive flights; EMI's finely balanced digital sound and the playing of the Berlin Philharmonic are also in this version's favour. Andsnes also offers slightly faster basic speeds than his rivals; particularly enjoyable is the free-flowing tempo for the central Andantino grazioso of the Schumann, which you'd never mistake for a simple Andante.”
Gramophone Classical Music Guide, 2010

“His virtuosity is commanding but it is never at the expense of tenderness and poetic feeling. The performane, recorded live in Berlin, is ever spontaneous-sounding with soaring flights of the imagination.” Penguin Guide, 2011 edition

Mozart:

Piano Concerto No. 24 in C minor, K491

Cadenza: Evgeny Kissin (No cadenza for the C minor Concerto has come down to us from Mozart’s hand. Soloists are thus left with the choice of using cadenzas written for the work by such composers as Saint-Saëns, or of playing one of their own devising, and in this recorded performance Evgeny Kissin follows the latter course.)

Schumann:

Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 54


“Evgeny Kissin: truly one of the elite” Gramophone Magazine

“Evgeny Kissin provides a very individual yet compelling view of Mozart's C minor Concerto. Kissin is not afraid to use the full dynamic range and tonal colouring of the modern piano, yet manages to make any slight fluctuation in tempo sound entirely natural and unmannered. Kissin recorded the Schumann Concerto with Giulini and the Vienna Philharmonic on Sony in the early 1990s, but this performance seems far more musically involving, Davis and the LSO responding with incisiveness to the many passages where piano and orchestra share the musical dialogue.” BBC Music Magazine, September 2007 *****
