Recorded with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in the iconic Abbey Road Studios, Elizabeth Sombartís new album focusses on the ever-popular Adagios and slow movements from the great piano concerto repertoire.

This 2-CD set spans centuries of keyboard repertoire, presenting the works of Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Saint-SaŽns, Rachmaninov, Grieg, Ravel, Brahms, Chopin and contemporary composer Pierre Adolphe.

Sombart says: ĎIn the unfolding of slow movements, composers reveal their soul. Their hearts open up and take us on a journey into our own inner being, where all pain, deprived of words, finds its consolation in the indescribable quality of sound and silence.í

ĎHighly charged yet deeply sensitive interpretations of these favourite concertos. Sombartís playing is superb: technically precise but possessing a flexibility and freedom that lets the music breathe. Vallet conducts with an innate understanding of the soloistís intentions. Recommended.í - The Observer (The Art of Chopin)
