The perfect starting point for exploring Romantic piano music. It features historic recordings of a truly excellent standard, including Blumental with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra under Helmuth Froschauer, the Orchestra of Radio Luxembourg with Pierre Cao accompanying French pianist Dosse, Boehm with the Westphalian Symphony Orchestra under Siegfried Landau, and Antal Doráti conducting the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra with Ilse von Alpenheim.
This 40 CD set contains a wealth of 19th century piano concertos written by composers who for some reason or other have been neglected by history, so called “minor masters” who may have lost the battle against the giants but nevertheless wrote very attractive, impressive and brilliant concertos for the piano (which in many cases was “their” instrument).
To name just a few: Hummel, Field, Czerny, Cxramer, Ries, Clementi, Thalberg, Moscheles, Litolff, Kalkbrenner, Lyapunov, Balakirev, Medtner, Glazunov, Henselt, Moszkowski, Scharwenka and many more, over 60 composers!
Most of the recordings come from the rich and unique VOX catalogue, featuring such excellent pianists as Michael Ponti, Felicja Blumenthal, Hans Kann, Martin Galling, Jerome Rose, Roland Keller and many more.
