Notes and Editorial Reviews

Rontgen’s Piano Concertos Vol. 2. Our second album featuring piano concertos by Julius Rontgen presents impressive Romantic music by this composer who was also an outstanding pianist and often interpreted his own compositions. His Piano Concerto No. 3 of 1887-88, by way of exception in four movements, is more reminiscent of Brahms and not at all of the New German School of Liszt adherents. In December 1929 Rontgen began composing his last two piano concertos, both of which are heard on this release. His Concerto No. 6 has one movement and lasts a mere fifteen minutes. The theme consists of repeated gentle wavy motion that recurs at the beginning, in the middle, with the cadenza, and at the end and reflects the bitonality so diligently Read more practiced by Willem Pijper and Paul Hindemith, two composers whom Rontgen held in admiration. His Concerto No. 7, his last such work, has three distinct movements and an ABA structure that would enable it to stand alone. It is Rontgen’s posthumous triumph that his two last concertos have never disappeared from the repertoire and have continued to be regularly performed together. Now for almost ninety years!
