Notes & Reviews:

This disc includes the two Piano Concertos; the first was originally intended to be a concerto for trumpet, but during the composition process the piano was added and eventually became the focus of the piece: it is unmistakably reminiscent of Shostakovich's vaudeville jazz suites.

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
One other thing I like about the Bronfman- Salonen disc is the filler: a rich-toned, moving traversal of the Piano Quintet with the Juilliard Quartet. Ortiz gives us pleasant, alert, crisp accounts of the three early Fantastic Dances, Op. 5.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: 1975.
