 Remarkable pianoconcerto's November 1, 2013
By Robert Glorieux (Merelbeke, Belgium) -- See All My Reviews
Before buying this CD I only knew the pianoconcerto by M. Ravel. After listening to the 3 others I must conclude that the pieces were particular : first the Debussy, probably written at a young age and influenced by the former romantic style in music; Poulenc and Francaix were a discovery : fresh and typical French sounds, very accessible and pleasant to listen to. I am pleased to own this CD. Report Abuse

 A rising star October 6, 2013
By Frances Vandervoort -- See All My Reviews
Pianist Florian Uhlig offers a refreshing interpretation of standard French fare the Ravel Piano Concerto in G major and Debussy fantastic and reminds of us that there are other composers that these two giants. Poulenc's concerto and Francaix' elegantly whimsical concertino almost make one smile -- Uhlig played these beautifully. Thank you for allowing this fine young pianist to introduce us to French music familar and not-so-familiar! F. Vandervoort Report Abuse

 A Great Collection October 5, 2013
By L. Weil (El Cerrito,, CA) -- See All My Reviews
This is a marvelous recording, mostly of works that are seldom heard, the exception being, of course, the Ravel. I had never heard of Uhlig, and I regret that: his performances of these works is excellent and make me want to be on the lookout for other recordings, or, if possible, a live performance.

 KNOW THIS PIANIST !! (LISTEN) September 5, 2013
By S. Pearson (SAN FRANCISCO, CA) -- See All My Reviews
ANY OF US WHO LOVE GREAT PIANO MAKE IT OUR BUSINESS TO KNOW.. WHO REALLY HAS IT. I WAS SURPRISED AND A BIT DISMAYED THAT THE REVIEWER REFERRED TO UHLIG AS "UNKNOWN"... I FIRST SAMPLED THIS FELLOW'S ARTISTRY A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO. I KNEW IMMEDIATELY THAT I WOULD FOLLOW HIM ! ALL THE WORKS OFFERED HERE ARE LOVELY OPPORTUNITIES TO SHOW UHLIG'S FINE RANGE OF TEMPERAMENT AND ABILITY. I ESPECIALLY LISTEN FOR SENSITIVITY: I EXPECT THE PERFORMER TO PLAY THE PIECE AS IF HE/SHE WERE ALONE... IN RAPT ABANDON. WITH UHLIG, I SENSE A SINCERE DEDICATION TO EACH PIECE HE SELECTS. HE DOESN'T RUSH.. OR FLOURISH.. IN FACT HERE'S A REFRESHING ABSENCE OF EGO ! JUST BEAUTIFUL PLAYING. LET'S GET UHLIG "KNOWN" ! Report Abuse
