Though hardly recognized today as more than Romantic era "curiosities," both Giovanni Sgambati (1841-1914) and Joseph Rheinberger (1839-1901) were composers phenomenally gifted from an early age, prolific, accomplished, unique musicians both, and highly regarded in their mutual countries of Italy and Germany, respectively. That musical history should relegate them to mere footnotes seems close to perversity, as the beauty and continuous invention of their piano concertos easily proves.

Sgambati, a most interesting, multi-talented man, whose champions included no less than Liszt and Wagner, and whose undaunted efforts widened dramatically the scope of 19th century Italian music beyond the singe-mindedness of its country's pre-occupation with opera, composed a single piano concerto--- his G Minor (c. 1878)--- amongst a significant output of sundry piano music, chamber and symphonic works, and a Requiem Mass. With a running time of nearly thirty-eight minutes, Sgambati's concerto is a magnum opus whose unity lies in its expert balance of strength and lyricism, gripping bravura and vivid imaginative detail. The imposing first movement Moderato maestoso exemplifies Sgambati's incredible gifts for compositional melodrama: wonderfully infused palpable tension and release, ingenious melodic twists, and completely satisfying moments of sheer beauty, coming frequently, and at exactly the right places. The thrilling initial piano entry is a perfect example: bold, electrifying, gorgeous. It sets us up for a movement of biblical proportions, and certainly motivates pianist Bolet, whose spectacular playing is every bit up to the task--- and then some!

Bolet on top form in a lesser romantic concerto-sound is good and playing of the Nuremberg orchestra is capable if not outstanding,but it is as a souvenir of Bolet that this disc is so important.The addition of Rheinberger's concerto will porbably surprise those who think of him only as a composer of some 20 organ sonatas and that ilk.It may not be a great piece but it passes its time effectively and the recording is fine-enjoy.

Throughout the 1970's, Genesis Recordings was one of the first companies to issue unique romantic repertoire basically for the piano including select concerti. This re-issue is one of these excellent recordings The program includes: Piano Concerto in A flat major, Op. 94 (Joseph Rheinberger (1839-1901): Moderato; Adagio polltico; Allegro energico; Adrain Ruiz, pianist, Nurnberg Symphony Orchestra, Zsolt Deaky, conductor; and Piano Concerto in G minor, Op. 15 (Giovanni Sgambati (1841-1914): Moderato maestoso; Romanza: Andante Sostenato; Allegro animato: Jorge Bolet (1914-1990), pianist, and Ainslee Cox (1936-1988), conductor, again with the Nurnberg Symphony Orchestra.
The sounod qualityy is excellent as was all Genesis recordings of the era. Program notes are clean, concise and informative.
The two pianists offer brilliant technique as well as deep musicality for this unique repertoire. Rheinberger is basically remembered today as an organist; however, he composed large works for all art forms. Ruiz adds color and plays with much panache.
Bolet was certainly a brilliant pianist and musician and the Sgambati concerto certainly reveals brilliant technique, showmanship, and an understanding of this type of difficult concerto. This re-issue is highly recommended for those listeners who love unique piano repertoire.
