Notes & Reviews:

The Romantic Piano Concerto series reaches volume sixty-two and makes an interesting (although temporary) departure. These four works by Charles Gounod are for pedal piano (a piano that includes a separate keyboard for the feet). Better known for his operatic and liturgical compositions, Gounod was inspired by the talent of the young and apparently very attractive Lucie Palicot whom he heard performing Alkan's music for the instrument in 1882. These works definitely show a different side to this nineteenth-century luminary. Italian pianist Roberto Prosseda, who gave the first modern performance of Gounod's Concerto for pedal piano and orchestra, makes his Hyperion début.

Classic FM
Prosseda shapes the music in long, elegant phrases that soar and compel utterly...
