Medtner & Rachmaninov Piano Concertos / Hamelin
Marc-André Hamelin (piano) London Philharmonic Orchestra, Vladimir Jurowski
Medtner: Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Op. 50 Rachmaninov: Piano Concerto No. 3 in D minor, Op. 30
A typical release—in so far as there can ever be such a thing—from Marc-André Hamelin, combining a stimulating, unexpected coupling; brilliant new light shed on the familiar; and pianism of the very highest calibre. Not to be missed.
