Moritz Moszkowski: Piano Concerto in A minor,op.17 & Ignacy Jan Paderewski: Piano Concerto in E major,op 59    Piers Lane (piano) BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra / Jerzy Maksyiuk    Hyperion

After,actually,enjoying (yes,I did! :o ;D) Anton Rubinstein's Piano Concertos 1,2 & 4 (I haven't heard No 3,yet;but it's in the pile!) I felt I had to hear the Moszkowki,since I knew it had some admirers! One critic on Musicweb (Ian Lace,see link below) even claiming that,if he was a castaway on a desert island and he could take only three piano concertos with him,the Moszkowski would be one of them! It helped that it was paired,on this cd,with the Padereswki,another Piano Concerto that has some admirers and,in the past,some doughty champions! I'm listening to it right now and the slow movement (Romanza:Andante) was so lovely I had to stop what I was doing. Least to say,I am mightily impressed by this concerto. But they're both good & worthy of concert hall exposure instead of the same old warhorses (great as they are!) year in year out,year in year out,year in year out! ::)

Update: Listening to the 3rd movement of the Moszkowski,now! My goodness! What a dazzler! This is so tuneful? Why doesn't this get played in concert halls?!! :) :) :) :) :)
