  • If you have never heard Moniuszko’s songs, rare Pergolesi arias or Villa-Lobos’ beautiful Bachianas No. 5, then this album is a must have. This beautiful collection of songs also features works by Niewiadomski, Scarlatti, Chopin, Strauss and Weill.
  • Performed by Felicja Blumental, this solo piano collection includes piano rarities such as Moniuszko's Spinning Girl, Szymanowski's Etudes and Preludes, Kabalewski and Kuhlau's Sonatines and Villa-Lobos' The Three Maries among others.
  • This CD presents the piano concertos of Manfredini and Paisiello who both spent some years at the Russian Court of the mighty Catherine the Great, where they composed music to reflect Catherine’s wealth and power including marches, dance music and didactic works for the court’s pleasure.
  • This CD brings back into the light concertos by talented composers Viotti and Platti. Viotti’s masterpiece is said to be a reworked violin concerto by Daniel Steibelt and the two Platti concertos curiously lay gathering dust for around 200 years.
  • Variations presents Carl Czerny’s experiments on a theme by Haydn (recognised as the German national anthem), the one and only existing piano concerto by Karl Stamitz and Vogler’s Variations based on an C18th nursery song, ‘For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow’.
  • This disc features the greatest of Beethoven’s piano concertos, the “Emperor,” as well as his barely known Romance Cantabile and Rubinstein’s one movement orchestral 'Konzerstück', worth listening to for it’s unusual combination of instruments!
  • This CD displays both Ms Blumental’s phrasing and technique as well as her affinity for the music of her homeland. Her stirring and illuminating interpretation of the 2nd movement in Chopin’s Concerto is beautifully balanced by the four lively Scherzi.
  • 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.
  • Felicja Blumental demonstrates her skill and dexterity performing Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2, one of the most challenging works for pianists worldwide. This CD also includes the rarely heard Rondo Brilliant on a Russian Folk Theme by Hummel.
  • 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.
  • This CD partners the wonderfully Romantic Piano Concerto in A minor, by Grieg with the Rhapsodie éspagnole by Liszt, arranged by Busoni. Also on this disc is the charming and rarely recorded Fantasie for Piano and Orchestra by Gabriel Faure.
  • This disc presents the beautifully restored recordings by pianist Felicja Blumental of Schumann’s Piano Concerto in A minor, the rarely recorded Piano Concerto in C by Kuhlau as well as Saint-Saëns’ quirky 'Wedding Cake' for piano and orchestra.
