Xaver Scharwenka (1850-1924): Complete Piano Concertos (4) / Alexander Markovich, piano; Neeme Jarvi

Notes & Reviews:

The Polish-born German composer Franz Xaver Scharwenka was a much lauded and beloved figure of late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century music. His four piano concertos are central works among his small output. With Neeme Järvi and the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra, Alexander Markovich has here recorded them together for the first time.

International Record Review, May 2014
Jarvi's watchful support and...control of orchestral dynamics gives Markovich more room to shape phrases effortlessly: his playing is especially fine [in the Scherzo of No. 1], cool-headed, but always meticulous...[in No. 2] Markovich blends fiery virtuosity with affecting warmth, too.
