Notes & Reviews:

"This is their tenth disc of his music, as far as I know. It is also part of an ongoing project of the Brittish Piano Concerto Foundation, Naxos and Peter Donohoe to record British piano concertos. Not everyone will react as ambivalently I have to this disc. It is really an important recording that may garner a large following with it spirit and verve. Donohoe and Yuasa go for broke with the concertos, particularly Donohoe, whose bravura pianism brings out their Russian character." ARG
