Notes & Reviews:

When the doors of an operatic career opened for Ferdinand Hérold in 1820, he took great care to hide away the piano concertos he had written ten years before to avoid accusations of 'eclecticism.' Left to languish in obscurity until our own time, these dazzling pieces are indispensable examples of spectacular virtuosity and Romantic sentiment in which the spirit of Beethoven and Schubert is clearly perceptible. This music is a fascinating 'missing link' between Mozart and Chopin. On this disc, pianist Jean-Frédéric Neuburger is partnered with the Sinfonia Varsovia led by Hervé Niquet.

"Charm and innocence deftly played... These three concertos inhabit, with manifest comfort and naturalness of address, the world of early Beethoven. The music possesses late classical drama but often with a winsome counter-subject. It is often Mozartean and sunny as in the first movement of No. 3 and sometimes showy in the sincere manner of Cramer and Hummel. Its blither progress chimes along with a sunny demeanour. The notes say that the music is garrulous but if that is true everything flows without friction or conflict, oiled by charm and innocence and untrammelled by fat or padding... On this evidence Hérold’s music is light on the aural palate and it's deftly played here. Congratulations all around including to whoever chose La Ronde by Victor Prouvé as the cover illustration for the digipack." -MusicWeb-International
