Schumann/ Chopin: Piano Concertos

The popular coupling of Schumann’s Piano Concerto in A minor and Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in F minor, Op. 21, featuring Louis Lortie as the soloist, is here re-issued on Chandos Classics.

On the original release, CD Review wrote of the performance of Schumann’s Concerto: ‘…his playing is thrillingly imaginative and I cannot recall ever having heard the Finale sound so physically exciting as it does here.’ About the performance of Chopin’s F minor Concerto, the reviewer noted: ‘Lortie produces a scintillating reading which resounds in the mind long after the music has ceased.’

The Philharmonia Orchestra is conducted by Neeme Järvi.

"...Louis lortie captures the full measure of the Schumann Piano Concerto..." "All in all, this is a fine Schumann Concerto performance..." "The Chopin 2nd... also draws a fine performance from Lortie and Jarvi." "The sound in both concertos is excellent. Recommended."
