Notes & Reviews:

"...The latest disc of music of Henry Litolff, featuring Peter Donahoe in a sensational Hyperion debut, may be the most successful in [the Romantic piano concerto] series yet. I enjoyed this disc enormously. Peter Donahoe brings a massive technique, flamboyant bravura, and poetic sensibility to these two showy, Romantic concertos, making them sound like masterpieces...Excellent sonics..." -Johnson, Fanfare

'Magical playing... the music is irresistibly melodious, inventive and dazzlingly virtuosic. Donohoe throws off the technical pyrotechnics with insouciance. A fine recording only enhances the joys of this entertaining music and Donohoe's exhilarating performance' (The Sunday Times)

'Recording and presentation are first class' (Gramophone)

'Donohoe and Litton rise to the occasion magnificently with panache and poetry in equal measure... for the fourteenth time in this historically important series of recordings we can raise our hats and say "Thank you, Hyperion"' (Classic CD)

'Peter Donohoe assume parfaitement les défis de ces pages flamboyantes, dans lesquelles l'Orchestre de Bournemouth fait preuve de tout l'éclat approprié' (Diapason, France)

'This entertaining Hyperion CD is one of the year's surprises and very much worth having' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)
