Felicja Blumental performs Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No.1 in B-flat minor (Op.23) with the Orchestra of the Vienna Musikgesellschaft, conducted by Michael Gielen. Originally recorded in 1957, the Concerto has been reissued on 180g vinyl and retains a vivid, transparent and spacious sound due to its remastering, whilst still preserving the authenticity of the original recording.
This recording of Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1 testifies to Ms Blumental’s skill and musicianship, whose hands were considerably smaller than those of the composer. This disc includes the rare Piano Concerto in F minor by Anton Arensky.
Composers such as Sibelius and Tchaikovsky are more often than not, recognised as masters of larger scale works. This collection of songs expose their smaller masterpieces and demonstrates the art of the French masters; Fauré and Duparc.
