Format: Audio CD
This is a stupendous recording of 2 great concertos of romantic orchestral music. I have listened to many different recordings over the years of these warhorses but few compare with this coupling ,only perhaps the live Horowitz/Toscannini and Argerich/Abbado versions do.The playing is virtuostic by both soloist and orchestra but is allways at the service of the composers.The recording is natural and well balenced.
Buy this cd and you will not be dissapointed.

HASH(0x8ab46b34) out of 5 stars Two Favorite Piano Concertos Beautifully Played on a Bösendorfer Imperial Concert Grand! 3 Sept. 2015
By James Yowell Yelvington - Published on Amazon.com
This CD (Hänssler CD-98.932) combines the two most popular piano concertos in today's classical repertory. Most lovers of piano music, especially of the "heroic" soloist vs. full orchestra genre will likely already have at least one recording of these pieces. Still some newcomers may not yet have acquired them. As a second or third (or more) such recording, the present CD would have to be justified on the basis of what unique and valuable attributes it brings to the music. As a first, and perhaps only recording, this CD must show how it is superior to all the others available--a very difficult burden of proof. Despite the fine qualities of this CD, I'm afraid I cannot make a very strong case for buying it as a sole recording of the pieces: there are simply too many other fine recordings, cherished and praised by large numbers of discriminating critics. As an additional recording, though, the case is easier to make: what is special about this recording which justifies adding it to one's collection?

My answer to that question is fairly simple and straightforward. The performers here, Garrick Ohlsson (pianist) and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields (with its conductor Neville Marriner) are both highly trained and experienced musical entities with well-established reputations for excellence in music-making. Their performances here, moreover, are fully worthy of their reputations. The recording team from the German firm of Hänssler does an excellent job of capturing the performances in high-quality, fully digital media. And as a sort of bonus, the piano used is a Bösendorfer Imperial Concert Grand, a very special "superpiano" made by the distinguished Viennese manufacturer, with a somewhat longer body and with 9 additional keys (notes) as compared with other concert grands. (The extra notes are all at the bass end, and though they are very seldom called for in piano scores they do add resonance when the sustaining pedal is depressed. Ohlsson prefers the Bösendorfer, by the way, and has called it "the Rolls-Royce of pianos.")

Do these qualities justify adding this CD to your collection? That depends, of course upon your individual interests and priorities. The fact that the disk is obtainable at a rather low price (here at Amazon) helps to make the case for it. The rest is up to you. I should add that I personally had no difficulty in deciding to buy the CD, that I played it with much enjoyment, and that I find it a very welcome addition to my collection.

Some recording details: the recording was made in Studio 1, Abbey Road Studios, London, on May 21-23, 1996. with John Timperley as balance engineer and Stephan Carrol Turner as piano technician. The liner notes are brief, but adequate, and written by Timothy W. Sharp, with translations in German and French. The total playing time is 69 minutes, 42 seconds.
