A great introduction to Schoenberg for the 12-tone phobic! 9 July 2000
By lauries@rice.edu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Though the name "Schoenberg" makes some people cringe, the Schoenberg piano concerto is a wonderful and highly expressive work. Though composed in the 12-tone style, it contains the same degree of lyricism and rhythmic drive that other, non-12-tone pieces have. Ax gives this concerto what it deserves- a highly sensitive performance that shows the concerto is a true piece of music rather than the product of a mechanical compositional process.
I'll admit I bought this disc primarily for the Schoenberg, but have enjoyed listening to both Liszt concerti as well. Though these works are at times looked down upon as inferior pieces, Ax reminds us that Liszt opened up an entirely new world of piano technique and sound. His performance is full of color, energy, and excitement.

great CD 17 July 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm not very familiar with Schoenberg, but this is an attractive recording. As for the Liszt, of which I've heard a few recordings, I have to say this one is not bad at all. Quite compelling, in fact. Esa-Pekka educes a vivacity necessary for these Romantic concertos, and Ax does nothing to dampen the spirit. The recording is surprising clear, as well. All in all, a worthwhile CD, especially for the price.

Glittering Liszt, but the standout is a riveting Schoenberg concerto 11 Mar. 2010
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The marketing tactic here was to sweeten the abstruse Schoenberg Piano Concerto, the height of intellectualism (by reputation) with the all but mindless fun of the two Liszt concertos. And why not? If they come for Liszt but stay for Schoenberg, some good has been served. Yet Ax's electrifying reading of the Schoenberg is the real standout here. Abetted by a brilliantly clear recording that makes the score sound as luscious as Mahler, and a conductor who's a true modernist, this recording doesn't make the dissonance easier on the ear, but it tells a story. Both conductor and soloist know the music so well and approach it so naturally that you can follow the truly lovely lyrical gestures, dramatic interludes, covert romanticism, and gorgeous orchestration even when your ear is harmonically lost. I'm not sure that's what the composer intended when he aimed to liberate the dissonance, yet he had skills in so many other departments that this music can be relished half in the dark, so to speak. A top recordings.

and the sweeteners? Ax's two Liszt concertos are certainly competitive--he plays with glittering brilliance, and the fastest passagework sounds as civilized as Chopin. I'm not sure these brass-plated warhorses deserve to go to a tea party, though. Ax doesn't act like he's in the middle of a three-ring circus, which is what Liszt intended and what he himself loved. If you are tired of showboating at the keyboard, then Ax's cool but splashy readings, with a notable absence of rubato, are right for you.

In all, given that this CD sells so cheaply at Amazon Marketplace, it's fairly unmissable.

Loving, caring performance given to a cold, bitter piece 18 Feb. 1999
By eyeamthewalrus@hotmail.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Ax and Salonen are, as usual, wonderful performers. They lavish careful attention to every detail in the Schoenberg Concerto. They approach this crass and ugly piece with loving care. They attempt to make music of this monstrosity created from a most unmusical compositional system. The Schoenberg is paired with two decidedly mediocre piano concertos, the two by Liszt. This is fortunate for the Schoenberg piece, for if concertos of the first rank, say, those by Bartok, for instance, were paired with Schoenberg's, they would make Schoenberg's Concerto sound ridiculous. I therefore give 5 stars to the performances, and 1 star to the pieces performed, thus arriving at my overall rating of 3 stars.
