Product Description

Hyperion s Romantic Piano Concerto series continues to surprise and delight with a 51st disc of 19th century pianistic splendor. This release includes works by Wilhelm Taubert and Jacob Rosenhain. Both were near exact contemporaries with Mendelssohn, Chopin, Schumann, Liszt, Wagner and Verdi. Nearly half a century separates Taubert s two concertos. The second reflects developments in the areas of harmonic expansion, cyclic development, and, of course, increased virtuosity. It was described by Schumann as one of the best and he noted the parallels between it and Mendelssohn s Op.25. Rosenhain wrote two works for piano and orchestra a Concertino (probably written in the 1840s), and the concerto included on this disc. Although fairly conservative in its form, there is much gorgeous and masterful music here. Howard Shelley directs the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra from the piano; a partnership that has garnered the highest praise for their previous Hyperion recordings.

Howard Shelley s crystalline touch, poised elegance at speed and gentle flexibility are well nigh ideal. --Gramophone

Great as the Romantic triptych had been - it would have been quite unimaginable (and certainly much less colourful) if the musical scene around the time of 1840 only involved these three iconic figures that we have come to understand as the torchbearers of the Romantic Era in musical discourse. Hence, it is viable once in a while to throw in a historical perspective while listening to works of the great Romantic masters and to reach an understanding that they did not work in isolation during their time. If art is a 'borrowed' form of expression - only the greatest geniuses can claim the most originality. It is always plausible that great composers derived their compositional impetus from 'lesser' contemporaries or predecessors that have been consigned to oblivion in musical discourse.

Shedding some light from history - as well as to benefit the ears of listeners with a predilection for Romantic music - gave birth to this fascinating series. With excellent production values and near perfect consistency in performance, the composers in question could very well be reliving the experiences of hearing their works performed in their time committed digitally - an experience which they themselves could not have imagined even in their own lifetimes.

Before you think I'm veering far from the music at hand, here it goes.

While Gramophone's ever-ubiquitous Jeremey Nicholas was decidedly reserved in his opening address on the memorability of the music; quite unjustly mentioned to be an 'anti-climax' after the previous volume of Tchaikovsky's First by Hough (never thought much of the work to be sure!

The Piano concertos by Rosenhain are a real revelation. What a remarkable composer. It is difficult to believe that with such talent he should be so little known. The world of music would definitely benefit from a Rosenhain revival. He belongs in the Pantheon of the world's greatest composers.

No wonder Schumann especially praised Taubert's first piano concerto. Amazingly, it is so fine that it stands up next to Mendelssohn, truly. Shelley's performance is a marvel, and just perfectly poised to not overburden the work, but pull it off with a dashing mien. The rest of the CD is enjoyable as well. Howard Shelley's other performances on other CDs in this whole Romantic series are an even more gigantic marvelas to quantity of works played. , but this one is special. How can he play all these works so well, as they are hardly ones he could have had in repertoire for years??? Maybe the Tasmanian devil gave a benediction to the proceedings!
