    What is the best recording of Alkan's Concerti da camera? I couldn't find much discussion about them here. I'm particularly interested in Concerto da camera No. 2 in C-sharp Minor. Thanks!

  6. Today's Composers
    Hi all, This is the final edit of the 3rd Movt of my 2nd piano Concerto. I've extended the cadenza and ironed out the wrinkles along the way. For some reason I couldn't stop twiddling with it until I got it to this point, but now that I have, I'm happy to think of it as finished and leave it...
  7. Orchestral Music
    As in the title. My top 20 favorite piano concertos from 20th century are: Rachmaninoff - Piano Concerto No. 1 in F sharp minor, Op. 1 (1891, revised 1917) Delius - Piano Concerto in C minor (1897/1904/1907) Rachmaninoff - Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Op. 18 (1901) Respighi - Piano...
  8. Today's Composers
    Hi all, I've not posted anything for over a year, been busy with other things, but I have also been working on my second piano concerto. I have the bones of the 1st and 2nd movements, but there is still a lot of work to do on those. I do however, have the 3rd movement finished (barring a few...
  9. Identifying Classical Music
    Hello dear fellow members, i hope you are all having a nice day. i recently came across this video where the bg music is playing somewhat faintly but if you concentrate, you can make out the notes. if any one among you can help me in identifying this piece of music i shall be extremely grateful...
  10. Today's Composers
    Hi all, It's been a long time since I posted anything here, but I've been working on my first fully orchestrated concerto. I really like it (obviously) but I know that working with Sibelius is in no way like working with a real orchestra. It may sound great (to me at least) with note...
  11. Classical Music Discussion Polls
    There are only three, but two of them (Op.33 & Op.60) are among the very greatest PC's ever written. I can only recommend the G.Tozer/Chandos and N.Demidenko/Hyperion recordings, they are by far the greatest. Some people (apparently) have difficulty getting in to N.Medtner. Personally, I...
  12. Classical Music Discussion Polls
    This topic has probably been done before, but I couldn't find one when I searched; so I'm going to revive it! It's too bad that the Saint-Saëns Piano Concerti don't receive more attention, they are all fantastic. Anyway, my #1 favorite is the PC#4 in C Minor, Op.44... PC#3 in Eb Major...
  13. Classical Music Discussion
    We can all say Mozart's development of the Piano Concerto genre played a very significant role in the history of music. So just curious, which concertos would you include in a list of his most important/best concertos, and then which would say are your personal favorites? It's ok to have some on...
  14. Classical Music Discussion
    So just thought I'd ask, excluding Mozart and Beethoven, which composers from the Classical Era would you say excelled most at the Piano Concerto genre?
  15. Solo & Chamber Music
    I wanna know what your favorite interpretation of this concerto are. Yesterday I was listening many versions, many pianists, including Rachmaninoff himself, was a bit surprised by his tempo of the first movement, because usually pianists tend to play it in a bit slow motion style :), perhaps it...
  16. Classical Music Discussion
    I'm just curious if anyone (particularly from the Classical Era on) wrote more Piano Concertos than Mozart? I had never really thought about it before... Thanks in advance!
  17. Orchestral Music
    Xaver Scharwenka wrote four Piano Concerti. The first was a major success. Liszt praised it, the waspish von Bulow's initial dismissive attitude turned into positive appraisal after hearing the work, Tchaikovsky (!) held it in high esteem. Mahler played its first movement in his only recorded...
  18. Orchestral Music
    Some excellent ones like Scharwenka's piano concerti come to mind. Unjustly regretted. What about you? Heard/know any such which deserve more acknowledgement? And Prokofiev's or Bartok's/[any other mainstream composers] concertos don't come close, so please don't include them here. They are...
  19. Orchestral Music
    This has been driving me crazy for days. There is a piece in a cutscene in the game We Love Katamari, and it sounds like a Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto, but I've checked and it isn't, unless I missed it. This is the link- . If anyone can help me, it would be much appreciated.
