5.0 out of 5 stars This is another great addition to the collection
I am collecting the Hyperion Romantic Piano Concertos. I am just waiting to receive vol.64.

This is another great addition to the collection.

Cannot agree at all with the 1 star reviewer which is why I wrote this review.

Godard is a very good but under-rated composer so I urge you to listen to this.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Dutton releases have not been surpassed.
You can only review this recording as a contrast to the previous dutton world premier recordings and to be honest this set, in my opinion comes out weaker.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Dutton releases have not been surpassed., 4 Aug. 2014
This review is from: Godard: Romantic Piano Concerto Vol.63 [Howard Shelley] [Hyperion: CDA68043] (Audio CD)
You can only review this recording as a contrast to the previous dutton world premier recordings and to be honest this set, in my opinion comes out weaker. The partnership of soloist and conductor makes the dutton superior; quick silver response to the orchestra by Sangiorgio and brilliant response by conductor Yates to Sangiorgio in the Dutton release makes for a wonderfully evocative and colourful reading. In the current release there is simply not the dialogue between soloist and orchestra and this comes down to the fact the the soloist was also the conductor. Mozart works in this manner but romantic music simply does not. The Orchestra on this recording is also not as good as the RSNO on the dutton recording. I also think that the French sounding performances achieved on the Dutton release are not present on this Hyperion release, meaning that both concertos are left sounding like stranded German works rather than the whimsical and sparkling French works revealed in the performances on the dutton recording. All in all, when there are so many un recorded Piano Concertos, I am left wondering why Hyperion bothered to replicate what we already have in already superior performances.
