5.0 out of 5 stars As good as a radox bath 9 Dec 2010
Format:Audio CD
What a refreshing set of piano concertos. The melodies ,themes and ideas are so different from the norm but are still fully traditional. It seems as though John Field has invented new exciting melodies which are very Chopinesque . One can see where Chopin gets a lot of his ideas from for his piano concertos.But still they are both individuals with additional interpretations to offer. John Field is new to me and I found him only because one of my favourite composers,Muzio Clementi, was Fields tutor.
You cannot fail to thoroughly enjoy this box set (and when you have try Muzio Clementi - especially his sonatas,duets etc. on the budget Arts label.(there are about 20 albums in the series.
Whilst I am waxing lyrical try my first love in composers for piano sonatas-Domenico
Scarlatti and his 13 discs of sonatas on the Naxos label.
Now I`ve spent your cash I shall return to listening to John Field.

Wow! Bought this box set after listening to the MP3 tracks and I was not disappointed. I had not heard of John Field before and had never heard his music played on the radio. Liked what I heard from the excerpts and bought the box set. You get 7 Piano Concertos, 2 Divertissements No. 1 and No. 2, a Rondeau, a Nocture No. 16 and a Quintetto. All on 4 discs. Great recording quality by Chandos and immaculate playing by Micael O'Rourke who is backed by the London Mozart Players under Matthias Bamert. There is too much good about these works to cover in this short review so if you like "tinkling ivories" then buy this set. Very highly recommended.
