Reviews

It’s interesting that for Pierre Boulez, Bartók’s Third Piano Concerto is ‘the Cinderella of the family’, and doubly interesting given the recorded evidence, where Boulez and Hélčne Grimaud turn prince and princess for the most memorable outing the work has had in years. ... How different is the Second Concerto, a high-energy production from Berlin. In the first movement the winds yak away while Leif Ove Andsnes approximates an angelic typist tabulating at speed, halfway between Anda’s playfulness and Pollini’s iron-fisted aggression. ... Krystian Zimerman’s account of the First Concerto is a refined tour de force, immaculate, controlled, sometimes quite free...  Rob Cowan
