CD Reviews

The underappreciated Moszkowski Piano Concerto
James S. Plank | Knoxville, Tennessee | 12/16/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Moszkowski typically gets written off as a ``salon'' composer of non-serious merit. I guess I won't argue with history, but I love this concerto. As with most Moszkowski, there's lots of twiddly passagework, always tastefully applied, but the thematic material and the moods of this concerto are wonderful.While it might be lighter fare than the standard concerto warhorses, I find that it's never far from my CD player, just like the LP was never far from my record player before the CD came out. To be honest, I don't really care about the other three concertos. The Moszkowski is why you should buy this CD."
Buy it for the Moszkowski

"The Moszkowski concerto is tuneful, stylish, and delightful, somewhat in the style or at least temperament of Saint-Saens. It certainly deserves at least a limited place in the concert repertoire. As for the other concerti on the disk, the Scharwenka and Thalberg are more of a historical curiosity, but the Rubenstein has flitted in and out of the concert repertoire from time to time (but to my ears is not up to a comparison with Moszkowski).They are all given serviceable, if not inspired, readings by Ponti."

"I really enjoy hearing little known works and all of these concertos deserve to be heard. The performances are excellent and, although I already have all of them on record albums, it's great to have them on CD's. I appreciate the fact that they were available! Thanks!"
