Notes & Reviews:

Pianist Hiroaki Takenouchi, in his first recording for Dutton, explores piano concertos by Georgy Catoire (1861-1926) and Percy Sherwood (1866-1939), two worthwhile but neglected contemporaries who came to musical maturity in the closing years of the nineteenth century. The music of Catoire, who was part of the circle of Tchaikovsky, Arensky and Lyadov, is gloriously romantic in the Russian tradition. It is remarkable that his heartwarming, lyrical concerto has been recorded only twice. German-born Percy Sherwood was a late romantic composer, who made a significant career as both pianist and composer. His output derives from the late-nineteenth century romantic tradition, a character particularly apparent in the gorgeous slow movement of his second concerto (1932-33).

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
Though very different, these concertos have an important similarity - they're good. Georgy Catoire (1861-1926), descended from a family of French businessmen, was born and died in Moscow. He began as a science student, but his musical ability gained the support of Tchaikovsky. He eventually taught at the University of Moscow, and his most famous student was Dmitri Kabalevsky.
