“Mertanen's bravura is commanding, as, more importantly, are his tenderness and spontaneous poetic response...The Gavle Symphony Orchestra conducted by Hannu Koivula also play gloriously...Everything is given with a living and breathing romantic impulse, is essentially "live", and you will sense a special warmth and spontaneity from Janne Mertanen.” Gramophone Magazine, May 2014

Mozart:

Symphony No. 40 in G minor, K550

Schumann:

Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 54

Gerhard Oppitz (piano)


Schumann's only piano concerto is romantically poetic and occupies a special place in the repertory. The piano and orchestra are closely interwoven, and one is not imaginable without the other.

Mozart composed his last three symphonies – including the G Minor performed here – in the summer of 1788. The symphony has a sombre, passionate and at times even tragic underlying mood.

Schumann & Dvorak: Piano Concertos


Dvorak:

Piano Concerto in G minor, Op. 33

original version from 1882

Schumann:

Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 54


New Naïve signing, Francesco Piemontesi, born in 1983, is one of today's most-watched pianists. His debut album on Naïve features the Schumann Piano Concerto and the original version of the Dvorák Piano Concerto, a work seldom performed due to its sheer technical difficulty. Conducted by Jiri Belohlávek with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the album was recorded at BBC Maida Vale studios (Dvorák) and live in concert at the Barbican (Schumann) in December 2012 and continues the blossoming relationship between soloist, conductor and orchestra, begun in 2010, with Strauss’s 'Burleske'.

Piemontesi was voted Best Newcomer at the 2012 BBC Music Magazine Awards. In presenting his student with the award, Alfred Brendel praised “a young pianist with real talent, a pianist of natural poise and grace, of wonderful technical equipment, and of the ability to remind us what beautiful playing means: cantabile playing that is colourful, luminous and harmonious, without in the least lacking tension and atmosphere.”

Piemontesi has been a prize-winner at numerous international competitions including the Queen Elisabeth in Brussels, and in 2009 was awarded a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship as well as being named by the BBC as one of its New Generation Artists.

“Schumann’s concerto never fails to enchant... and Piemontesi brings to it an exquisite lyricism” Sunday Times, 2nd June 2013

“Piemontesi's crisp articulation is matched in the characterful playing of the BBC SO's clarinet, flute and oboe principals, the cadenza of the Schumann exquisite. Belohlávek's balancing of orchestra and soloist is near-ideal” The Independent, 22nd June 2013 *****

“his performances in these two warm-hearted concertos amply display his pure-spirited, intelligent artistry...Piemontesi makes an even more satisfying impression when he lets his hair down a little.” BBC Music Magazine, August 2013 ****

“Piemontesi benefits from a wonderfully realistic piano sound - too forwardly placed, some may think - which captures his creamy tone production and tapered phrase-ending to good effect... Listening to Piemontesi...makes you wonder if it isn't time the Dvorak gained a place in the regular concerto repertoire.” Gramophone Magazine, August 2013

“It’s a performance full of vivid imagery, refined lyric tracery and dancing rhythms. Some teasing pianistic rubati - faithfully followed by the conductor - ensure that nothing is metrical, and that the wind tapestry in particular sounds authentically Czech...If you are keen to hear the Dvořák original - or maybe it’s better to say ‘Original, mark II’ - then go for this Naive release which comes complete with excellent notes by Ludmila Smidová.” MusicWeb International, 4th September 2013

“Piemontesi is a very gifted young player and his account of Schumann’s original masterpiece ranks highly- always intensely musical and respectful of the score, deeply felt, producing a performance that will give much pleasure” International Record Review, September 2013
