Some notes from the Amazon site:


It is difficult to overstate the breadth of contribution of Anton Rubinstein to the development of the Russian culture in the 19th century. His multifaceted genius can be divided into three areas- Rubinstein the composer, the pianist, and the educator. In this second release in the series of recordings of his works for piano and orchestra, we focus on Rubinsteins role as a composer. Hailed by The New York Times as a pianist of a fiery sensibility and warm touch, Anna Shelest is an international award-winning pianist who has thrilled audiences throughout the world. Champion of esoteric repertoire, Anna is collaborating with legendary conductor Neeme Jarvi on this project, which will eventually record the complete works for piano and orchestra by Anton Rubinstein. The first album in the set was released in 2018 to critical acclaim.

I have heard the beginning of the Rubinstein 5th on this release, and being used to the more placid tempos of the Allegro moderato from the Ruiz and Banowetz recordings, it sounds way too rushed to me.

Yes the Banowetz is my go to recording...  haven't heard it yet, but Jarvi tends to move at a faster tempo than others... Banowetz still teaches at the Univ of N Texas School of Music in piano performance.

I have altered the spelling of the original title of the thread and of the subsequent contributions and, by a miracle of technology, this has taken effect in the list of Recent Posts on the Home Page ;D
