Notes and Editorial Reviews

It is a truth, universally acknowledged, that any young man in possession of musical fortune must be in want of a piano concerto, or so it seemed in the late 19th century, when names such as Henselt, Scharwenka and Sgambati signified keyboard greatness. These men did not live long enough to make recordings, but they wrote heroic piano concertos as vehicles for their own playing. Largely forgotten today, these works remain as striking documents of a bygone gallantry and Hyperion is systematically rescuing them in their "Romantic Piano Concerto" series.
The photo on the cover of this disc shows what appears to be a boy of about fourteen, which is how old Ignaz Brüll was when he started his first piano concerto. Born in Moravia, Brüll was
Read more an important member of Brahms' circle, was the first to play many of the master's keyboard works and had great success with an opera, 'Die Goldene Kreuz.' His own compositions were perhaps more old-fashioned than Brahms', harkening back to Mendelssohn and Schumann, and even his 'Andante and Allegro' of 1902 sounds like it could have been written in 1850. The performances, recording and documentation are all up to Hyperion's usual high standards. Read less
