 Hyperion Does It Again! July 5, 2012
By Henry S. (Springfield, VA) -- See All My Reviews
Outstanding! Yet another winner in Hyperion's Romantic Piano Concerto series. Friedrich Kalkbrenner may not be a household name these days, but his spirited orchestral writing from the heart of the Romantic era is definitely worth a listen. Kudos to Howard Shelley and the excellent Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra. A most rewarding listening experience is guaranteed. Recommended! Report Abuse

 Romantic Piano- Kalkbrenner/Shelly June 16, 2012
By John Edelblute (Hartford, WI) -- See All My Reviews
I had never heard of this composer before he appeared om your web site. I am glad I discovered him. I listened to the sound samples, liked them, and ordered the CD. The piano work and orgustration is superb. This CD joined my others in the Hyperion series. The entire series of romantic piano on this label is the best ever. Keep featuring them along with sound samples which are a good sales tool, and I will surely purchase more of them. Report Abuse

 Breathtaking May 24, 2012
By Anthony G. (SANTA FE, NM) -- See All My Reviews
Kalkbrenner's music has been wrongly neglected and ignored. Conductors and virtuosi play the same tired pieces over and over again.Does one really need to hear another performance of the Emperor when any one of Kalkbrenner's concertos enchants as much? The music of composers like Kalkbrenner would do much to boost the love of Classical music and fill our shrinking musical audiences and sparsely attended concerts of Classical music . We need some new blood and some new repertoire. We could follow Kalkbrenner with the zillionth performance of Mozart's 40 g if that would make our fossilized audiences happy. In the meantime, let's tempt the under 70 crowd! Report Abuse

 Romantic Piano April 13, 2012
By George Buck (Fresno, CA) -- See All My Reviews
This has turned out to be one of my favorite concerto's in this label's Releases in the Romantic Concerto Series. I have all of their releases (all 56). It's very lyrical, which is enhanced by the lovely tender playing of Howard Shelley.I'm not a musically educated individual, but I do love great piano performances of good music, and I think this is one of them.
