Notes and Editorial Reviews

No fewer than four composers vie for attention in volume 78 of the Romantic Piano Concerto. There’s only one official piano concerto here, but it’s a remarkable work from a composer in her mid-teens.

-----

REVIEW:

Pianist Howard Shelley and the Tasmanian Symphony continue their impressive record of clean, differentiated performances of a great variety of Romantic works, and that variety is the key point here.
