About

Following her acclaimed recording of Tchaikovskyís Piano Concerto no.2 in 2016 (Editorís Choice, Gramophone), Xiayin Wang here completes the trio with no.1 and the posthumously published no.3, alongside Scriabinís only concerto.

Whether Tchaikovsky gave his consent to the virtuoso Alexander Ziloti to revise his Piano Concerto no.1 is unknown, but Wang here presents the lesser-recorded original version. Piano Concerto no.3 was originally begun as a symphony, all of which except the first movement was ultimately abandoned; that surviving movement was later completed as a single-movement concert work for piano and orchestra.

Scriabin finished his Piano Concerto in only a few days, although it took months to orchestrate it before the 1897 premiere. Sensitively played by Wang, the concerto shows a naÔve charm that even Scriabin, at his most translucent, would struggle to recapture once his career got underway.
