 Grand Concertos in the Rachmaninoff/Scriabin Mode December 15, 2018 By Joshua C. See All My Reviews "For my money, Hyperion's Romantic Piano Concerto Series is pretty much self-recommending. I've been a devoted collector for years and only a handful have failed to impress. While there are many obscurities, most deep catalogue collectors (like myself) have at least some name recognition, but that was not the case with Roger Sacheverell Coke. In fact, were it not for the advocacy of pianist Simon Callaghan - and his recording these concerti - I still would not have heard of Coke. Coke is definitely one of those composers where you absolutely MUST forget about his birth and death dates (1912-1972) and just focus on the music - which is spectacularly wrought for both piano and orchestra in the Rachmaninoff/Scriabin tradition, especially Scriabin in the case of the Fourth Piano Concerto!
