Notes and Editorial Reviews

Including over 60 composers and spanning the entire Romantic period, this impressive 40 CD set aims to bring some of the more obscure piano concertos of that era into the limelight. Although some of the earlier composers in this set can be technically called ‘classical,’ it is in them that we see the first stirrings of Romanticism. The earliest concertos from Clementi and Stamitz contain those initial leanings away from traditional Classicism. On the other end of the spectrum, we have neo-Romantic composers like Samuel Barber, who is a celebrated 20th century composer, but who also uses many Romantic stylistic elements in his compositions. Of course, the virtuosic well known Romantic composers are included, like Liszt and Thalberg. During Read more the age of Romanticism, the concept of a virtuoso had only been explored by violinists such as Paganini, so these composers were some of the first to bring that passion and skill into the world of piano.

 great music and a great bargain November 8, 2016 By Jeroen V. (Emmeloord, Netherlands) See All My Reviews "This is a great box set with rare piano concertos by lots of unknown composers to me but they were all worth discovering. At this price it's easy to try some music that you have never heard before. To me it's a great Romantic journey through time: from Hummel, Field, Czerny, Cramer, Ries, Clementi and Thalberg to Moscheles, Litolff, Kalkbrenner, Lyapunov, Balakirev, Medtner and many more.. Most of the recordings come from the famous VOX-catalogue featuring a lot of excellent pianists." Report Abuse
 Excellent----except for one thing August 3, 2016 By Jerry G. (Edgewater, CO) See All My Reviews "I am only about half way through the set,but I find the selections and sound quality very good. The except for is there is no list of the CD's in the booklet. This means if you are looking for a certain concerto your reading the back of forty CD jackets. Otherwise it's a great buy."

 I'm ecstatic. August 3, 2016 By Gregory  Carlson (Marshall, VA) See All My Reviews "I have been collecting romantic piano concertos for over 30 years and this is the answer to my prayers. 40 CDs each with at least two concertos for $50. So far the quality of the recordings and of the performances has been of the highest standards. This is the greatest deal ever. I couldn't be happier." Report Abuse
