Overview

Grieg & Moszkowski: Piano Concertos

German pianist Joseph Moog, apparently unrelated to Robert, has been unusually adventurous with regard to repertoire, and he comes up with a winner on this Onyx release. The big news here is his revival of the "Piano Concerto in E major, Op. 59," of Moritz Moszkowski, a work that would have been quite a popular repertory item in the years following its composition in 1898, but that is very sparsely represented on recordings these days. It's a wonderful work that's lots of fun for any classical listener, broadening out from Brahmsian formality to a really rollicking finale to which Moog gives full rhythmic value. The degree to which this work would enliven something like a summer outdoor symphonic concert would be hard to overstate, and on top of that there is a sharp, energetic performance of the well-worn Grieg "Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 16." Throw in flexible, alert support from the cumbersomely named Deutsche Radio Philharmonie Saarbrücken Kaiserslautern under Nicholas Milton, and fine studio sound from Saarland Radio, and this is a strongly recommended disc of late Romantic piano music.
