The popular and critically admired Chandos recordings of John Field’s expressive cycle of Piano Concertos are brought together for the first time as a limited edition 4-CD set and released at the price of only 2 CDs.

A major forerunner of the Romantic school of pianism that culminated in Chopin, Dublin-born pianist and composer John Field had scarcely received his due until Chandos released the performances of the Piano Concertos by fellow countryman, Miceal O’Rourke.

As one publication wrote, “Field’s star is currently shining brighter than ever, thanks in no small measure to the partnership of pianist Miceal O’Rourke and the Matthias Bamert-led London Mozart Players.” (The Lady)

O’Rourke’s talent was admired by many other publications with comments such as “O’Rourke seems to have adopted the style of Field himself; he has a lovely touch and flow.” (American Record Guide) “O’Rourke’s delicate touch is ideal for conveying the charm of Field’s music,” (The Times) while Gramophone stated “all praise to those responsible...”

"...The soloist, Micéal O’Rourke, is very persuasive and he receives admirable support from Bammert and the London Mozart players..."
