The hugely impressive Charles Richard-Hamelin makes this week's GRAMOPHONE - Listening Room

Bookmark and Share

For Piano Day 2019 - March 29 – a date chosen perhaps to take our minds, some chance, off other events, GRAMOPHONE made this week's playlist particularly piano-rich. Alongside two Romantic piano concertos – Chopin's Second played by the hugely impressive Canadian pianist Charles Richard-Hamelin and Liszt's First from the Korean Jae-Hyuck Cho (Juilliard-trained and an organist as well as pianist) recorded with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra on fine form – I've Ellen's songs by Schubert sung by the light-voiced Anna-Lucia Richter and a couple of Brahms songs in a historic recording from the 1965 Salzburg Festival sung with gorgeous, burnished tone by Grace Bumbry.
