Notes and Editorial Reviews

Fumiko Shriaga had an enormous suceess a few years back with her "chamber" versions of the Chopin piano concertos performed with string quartet ("one of the most exciting Chopin recordings in recent years" Gramophone 6/1997). She brings to the current task not merely an enviable technique but the infectious enthusiasm that is so essential to a performance of these arrangements. The accompanying trio of musicians is no less distinguished. Hummel would surely have been impressed by the result. And Mozart himself would certainly have been entertained by many of Hummel's "solutions" and by the excellence of the performances. Something different from BIS - yet again!
