Overview

For volume 50 of Hyperion's Romantic Piano Concerto series, a typically stellar cast has been assembled for a two-disc set that includes one of the most famous concertos in the repertoire. Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No.1 has certainly achieved warhorse status -- but in the expert hands of Stephen Hough, it sounds new once again.

Recorded live with the Minnesota Orchestra under their acclaimed conductor Osmo Vänskä, this fascinating two-disc, complete survey of Tchaikovsky's music for piano and orchestra also delves into less well-known music by the famous composer.

The result is a release of unique importance: a winning combination of a pianist at the zenith of his artistry, a world-class orchestra and director, a pre-eminent producer and engineer, repertoire both familiar and unknown and packaged with even more than the usual care that customers have come to expect from Hyperion.
