Notes and Editorial Reviews

"A useful compilation of romantically tuned slow movements from various keyboard concertos. Tamas Vasary's splendidly involved version of Liszt's First Piano Concerto is a valuable reissue. The same pianist is partnered by Janos Kulka in a serviceable recording of Chopin's 'Andante Spianato e Grande Polonaise' with a wonderfully supportive BPO proving the ace in the pack here."
