- Ronald Brautigam (Piano)
Notes & Reviews:
BBC Music Magazine
The playing is refreshingly alert throughout, with tempos noticeably on the fast side.
International Record Review
These well-known works emerge as if freshly minted.
This is a recording set-up with consequences. Out the window goes the romantic 19th-century notion of the concerto as a titanic conflict between soloist and orchestra. In come intimate performances, styled almost as chamber music. In an early, Mozartean concerto like the C major, Op 15 (the first to be published, but not the first written), this scale of delivery is ideal. Brautigam's fingering is so agile and clear that he makes you tingle in arpeggio runs; he's equally splendid capering about, lightweight and giggly, in the rondo finale...If you want the blunt power of the old mighty Russians, Brautigam is probably not your pianist. But there's fierce clarity here, and musical refreshment of a high order.
