Notes and Editorial Reviews

Ernst von Dohnanyi was one of the most versatile and influential musicians of his time but his stage works, orchestral compositions including symphonies, concerti as well as his numerous chamber music are now seldom played. A gap which Capriccio wants to fill now with this fourth recording of his late romantic, sensual music, deeply rooted in the Austro-German classical tradition. There is nothing in the musical language of these Piano Concertos (rhythm, melody, harmony as well as in the traditional orchestration) which Brahms would have found unfamiliar. With Sofia Gülbadamova, who turned out to be an expert in Dohnanyi’s piano music as she has already released his complete Solo Piano Works (Capriccio C5332), this recording was in Read more good hands, carefully accompanied by Ariane Matiakh who also recorded Dohnanyi’s The Veil of Pierrette some months before (Capriccio C5388).
