Audiophilia, May 2012

The box set Great Piano Concertos has been produced to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Naxos and draws on their extensive catalogue of concerto recordings. The recording quality varies from the older 1980’s recordings but there are some good things to enjoy in the 10 CD set particularly Idil Biret playing the two Chopin piano concerts with the Slovak State Philharmonic under Rubert Stankovsky. The two Liszt concertos with Eldar Nebolsin and the RLPO under Petrenko are also very enjoyable as is Jenő Jando playing the Grieg and Schumann concertos with the Budapest Symphony under András Ligeti.

There are finer performances available in the catalogue of these works but this box set give an excellent introduction at a bargain price to the main body of concertos written for the Piano from Mozart to Prokofiev via Beethoven and Brahms and you can’t offer a much better way to introduce yourself to any works you don’t know. © 2012 Audiophilia
