Verified Purchase
Woelfl is one of the composers who still, like numerous other contemporaries of Mozart and Beethoven, suffers unspeakable slander today; a slander that could probably only be borne out of sheer ignorance and uninformed prejudice.

His prodigious talent at the keyboard could very likely have inspired the young Beethoven to hone his extraordinary pianistic skill even further; as from the fateful Viennese duel of 1798.

His spirit of aristocratic elegance and classical poise as inherited from the hands of Mozart is something that Beethoven could perhaps, only admire from a distance.

When one is blind to musical historicism, one fails to realize the richness, diversity and depth of it.

Even though Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven - the revered pantheon as we associate classical music with now, shaped how we perceive the classical era in music; it was Woelfl and other neglected composers today, held in esteem in their days, that were the composers who shaped how classical music was as it was heard in THEIR TIME.

Having said, Woelfl's First concerto in G major is perhaps the best music to match any Regency-themed period drama. The witty dotted theme that pervades the entire movement not only pays homage to Mozart's Figaro, but lends motivic development to the piano writing. It is quite impossible not to think this albeit early work (if it still betrays more than a hint of his late master Mozart), not to be touched with a hint of genius. It steers clear from the militaristic and programmatic excesses of the subsequent concertos on the same disc, is simple, yet absolutely charming, has the right dose of pathos, is classically-balanced and taut in conception.

I agree totally with the previous reviews but will give this five stars, simply because of the pleasure it brings me. There are, unfortunately, only two early-period Beethoven piano concertos. Well, here are three more -- not quite at Beethoven's level, perhaps, but guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Even the quasi-bombast of the "Grand Military" concerto is all in good fun. Wolfl is imaginative, sometimes ingenious, entertaining, and never tiresome. In short, great music for those lighter times when soul-searching seems a bit of an effort. The playing by the pianist and the orchestra are quite fine.

Light hearted piano concerto's in the late mozart and early Beethoven-style. Hardly "deep" music but rather virtuosic and hard played but very entertaining. Imaginative orchestrated, especially the fifth concerto. The pianist seem to do a very good work and so does the orchestra and conductor.

Recomended

Now i only hope they could record some of Daniel Steibelts piano concertos.

The reviewer of 05/01/09 pretty much said about everything I might think to write, and then some. These late Classical concerti are about as good as it gets below the rung inhabited by Mozart, Haydn and the early Beethoven. If you're looking for an engaging break from the power hitters of the era, consider this album. It bears up under repeated listenings. Recommended.
