Classical Music, August 1989

In these appropriately dramatic performances, he brings convietion to No. 1 and is no less persuasive in No. 2. The slow movement of the First Concerto is superbly managed (with admirable assistance from the Czech wind players, who also illuminate the adagio sostenuto of No. 2). Banowetz responds to the greater depth of the second of Liszt's piano concertos, and offers brilliance in the concluding allegro animato. A suitably vivid performance of the over-the-top Totentanz completes a well-performed programme.
