Streaming now, and enjoying the first few moments.
Now that you poked fun, I think, I will give this album a spin.
Here’s a better cover…same work. Orkis is a great artist, but Uchida does add her special effect on the piano (and the cover)
Interesting that it includes the entire violin concerto (as the first piece on the record, no less) but doesn’t even mention it on the front cover. I wonder if DGG is sensing some consumer overload on the piece after all these years.
I think they do and this is why they coyly labeled it something else. But this young lad plays very well.
I am going to have to pick that one up. Joyce Yang and her mother were in our home in Colorado a few years ago for an after concert party. Delightful ladies. Joyce is a superb pianist.
You’ve inspired me to listen to his Beethoven. Not bad for a 18 year old.
Another example of DG introducing an artist in a saturated record (I mean all replay formats) market! In a way, I see it as an invitations to get out of complacency, listen and taste something well known freshly revisited.
