This four-movement work, 18 minutes in length, obviously is very demanding for the soloist; it is easy to understand why Wittgenstein didn't play it—but the technical problems don't exist for Fleisher. A live recording of this music can be found on the internet with Fleisher and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra directed by Markus Stenz from March The Curtis Orchestra sounds a bit scrappy in their accompaniment—they cannot match the finesse or richness of the Dutch orchestra.
This is a valuable recording primarily for the Hindemith.

I approached this issue of Rachmaninoff's "Piano Concerto No. This project was brought to fruition by Pieter van Winkel who loves the composer's Symphony No. Winkel asked pianist Alexander Warenberg, whose solo career was halted by an injury, to convert the symphony into a concerto—and it worked quite successfully!
Warenberg turned the four movements into three, generally following the composer's style, and made some imaginative changes in orchestration.
As you listen to this you will often be reminded of Concerto No. Everything has been admirably adapted, and the "Rachmaninoff style" is always apparent. To me, the only weakness is the very beginning of the work: the first 90 seconds is the actual opening of the symphony. How much more effective it would have been if the piano played soft low chords to accompany this opening. Audio quality is excellent, with the piano nicely balanced with the orchestra. An intriguing issue, indeed, and one I will return to often. Young pianist Joel Fan, who studied with Leon Fleisher at the Peabody Conservatory, is at the beginning of what already is a major career.
He is a member of Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble, and has been acclaimed for his virtuoso playing of a wide variety of repertory.

West of the Sun , his second disk for Reference Recordings , offers nine works by nine different composers of North and South America, ranging from miniatures by Beach and Gottschalk to sonatas by Barber and Ginastera.

This new Chandos issue is welcome indeed, unjustly neglected music by a fascinating British composer. As usual with Chandos, audio quality is first-rate. Again we are indebted to Bearac Reissues for reissuing many major recordings of the past, in splendid transfers. The Beethoven concertos always played an important part in Rudolf Serkin's career; he made his American debut February 23, playing Concerto No. There are many other commercial and live Serkin performances of the concertos including live recordings of all five with the Bavarian Radio Symphony directed by Rafael Kubelik, and his last recording of the complete set, in , with Seiji Ozawa and the Boston Symphony Telarc.
