Concerto for Piano and Orchestra[CD]
~ GAL / BRIGGS / BETH,SARAH(Jewel Case Packaging)
Bringing to light another of Hans Gál's gorgeously melodic and finely crafted scores, AVIE presents the world premiere recording of the Austrian émigré's Concerto for Piano and Orchestra with English pianist Sarah Beth Briggs supported by Gál aficionado Kenneth Woods conducting the Royal Northern Sinfonia. Written in 1948, Gál's large-scale romantic concerto abounds with sweeping phrases and pyrotechnics, yet at the heart of the piece lies the composer's signature clarity and precision, making the work an ideal coupling for his 18th century Viennese compatriot Mozart's great E-flat major concerto of 1785.
