Dutton Epochís first recording with the Royal Northern Sinfonia features pianist Victor Sangiorgio, brilliant in two romantic concertos of the mid-nineteenth century but given a modern twist: Martin Yatesí realisation of the surviving fragments of Mendelssohnís unfinished Piano Concerto in E (in a World Premiere Recording) and Balakirevís very Russian orchestration of Chopinís Piano Concerto no.1.

With this realisation of the Mendelssohn Piano Concerto, Martin Yates has produced another compelling performing edition that stands alongside other similar projects for Dutton Epoch, such as his realisation of E J Moeranís Sketches for Symphony no.2. Balakirev scored Chopinís Concerto at the very end of his life. He viewed it as a 'Grand Concerto', and with its use of modern brass and the cor anglais, he brings a Russian flavour to Chopinís sound-world that has to be heard.

Recorded at Hall One, Sage Gateshead, Gateshead, January 2014.
