Pianist Piotr Anderszewski marks his 50th birthday with a pair of magnificent piano concertos. Haydn is in high spirits throughout his concerto – he opens with the kind of tune that puts a spring in your step, and closes in Hungarian style, with a brilliant tour de force, flashing with fireworks.
In contrast, Schumann’s is perhaps the most poetic of all piano concertos: a searching, passionate, Romantic masterpiece.
