The popular coupling of Schumann’s Piano Concerto in A minor and Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in F minor, Op. 21, featuring Louis Lortie as the soloist, is here re-issued on Chandos Classics.


On the original release, CD Review wrote of the performance of Schumann’s Concerto: ‘…his playing is thrillingly imaginative and I cannot recall ever having heard the Finale sound so physically exciting as it does here.’ About the performance of Chopin’s F minor Concerto, the reviewer noted: ‘Lortie produces a scintillating reading which resounds in the mind long after the music has ceased.’


The Philharmonia Orchestra is conducted by Neeme Järvi.

Jessica Duchen

BBC Music Magazine - October 2010

"...Louis lortie captures the full measure of the Schumann Piano Concerto..." "All in all, this is a fine Schumann Concerto performance..." "The Chopin 2nd... also draws a fine performance from Lortie and Jarvi." "The sound in both concertos is excellent. Recommended."
