Notes & Reviews:

"Hyperion's Romantic Piano Concerto juggernaut continues to roll on. This, the 18th volume in the estimable series, gives us a pair of well-matched concertos by two Late Romantic contemporaries...Korngold was the first composer Paul Wittgenstein commissioned to compose a left-hand concerto, even before Prokofiev and Richard Strauss...The more I hear this brilliantly structured work the more I think this may be Korngold's single greatest orchestral composition..." -Johnson, Fanfare

'A superb coupling... the frankly outrageous challenges set by these unfailingly inventive scores are overcome by Hamelin with a nonchalance bordering on effrontery. A revelation' (Piano International)

'Mesmerising playing from Hamelin in two fascinating late-romantic concertos. Enthusiasts for virtuoso piano writing of the most fearsome difficulty will find it impossible not to be overwhelmed by the sheer brilliance of Hamelin's playing' (Classic CD)

'All the most wildly romantic concertos you can think of rolled into one huge pianistic feat' (Gramophone)

'One of the most memorable in Hyperion's much-valued Romantic Piano Concerto series' (The Scotsman)

'Exceptional pianism' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Heroic piano playing of monumental proportions' (In Tune, Japan/USA)
