Notes & Reviews:
The sixth CD in the MDR Edition series, featuring works by Franz Schmidt, contains a unique repertoire: Schmidt's piano concertos "for the left hand." Both works are dedicated to famous pianist Paul Wittgenstein, who had lost his right arm during World War I and developed a unique style of playing with only his left hand. This disc features splendid musicianship by Fabio Luisi and the MDR Symphony Orchestra, with the solo part played by Carlo Grante, one of today's best Italian pianists.
