Chopin's Piano Concerto no.1 is well established on the world's concert platforms. Huangci is well aware that there are two sides to Chopin: the man who composed the piano concerto and the creator of the Nocturnes. In comparison to Chopin, Paderewski is relatively unknown, yet he was an intensely interesting man and his Piano Concerto is rich in ideas and resources. Claire Huangci is therefore mystified as to why it is so seldom performed.
"I really don't understand why it isn't one of the standard bearers of the piano concert repertoire." The configuration of the recording is ideal: two artists who composed their works early in their careers, interpreted by an equally young pianist. Huangci perceives the youthful verve of the compositions: "Both composers exude a true joie de vivre, a love of life, attributable to their youth. The concertos were clearly written by men who looked with hope to the future."
The album radiates intrinsically in two different directions: one of the best known works for solo piano and orchestra offers a comparative approach to the lesser-known work. And in doing so, hitherto unheard aspects of the "classic work" are revealed.
