4.0 out of 5 stars Give it time to grow on you, there is some lovely music here, 1 Oct. 2001
This review is from: The Romantic Piano Concerto, Vol. 20 Brüll (Audio CD)
My favourite musical genre is the piano concerto and I am always keen to hear works new to me. I am particularly fond of romantic concertos, so I always buy any new additions to the Hyperion Romantic Piano Concerto series. I had not heard any of Brull's work before buying this CD and I played it with keen anticipation only to feel somewhat disappointed by the end. In general the music seemed rather naïve and the melodic line repetitive and predictable, particularly in the first concerto (possibly to be expected, as Brull was only 14 when he wrote it). Over the next few weeks I listened to the CD a few times and it gradually grew on me. I now enjoy it greatly. The best piece is the Andante and Allegro, written when Brull was much older, followed by the second concerto and then the first concerto. The playing, general musicianship and sound quality are what I have come to expect from Hyperion. In short, give it time to grow on you, there is some lovely music here - it just took me a while to hear it.
