Notes & Reviews:

"This is the first recording of the Dohnanyi, and it is also the first time I have heard the piece, and now I frankly wonder why. It is a beautiful work, and I can't imagine why it isn't more popular. Erno Dohnanyi's style recalls the hyper-romanticism of Erich Korngold, and the concerto is rich in melody. The orchestration is unusual, in that there are no violins...[Kaplan] plays with a very secure technique [and] a beautiful tone..." -Magil, ARG
