Sterndale Bennett Piano Concertos Nos. 1 & 3


Sterndale Bennett Piano Concertos Nos. 1 & 3


"Perhaps it was hearing Mendelssohn play his G minor Concerto in 1832 that prompted the sixteen-year old Sterndale Bennett to write his concerto in D minor and a work of extraordinary fluency and accomplishment. David Byers, speaks of Bennett's 'gentle lyricism, the strength and energy of the orchestral tuttis'; and they are in ample evidence. No praise can be too high for the playing of Malcolm Binns whose fleetness of finger and poetic sensibility are a constant source of delight. The engineers produce sound of the highest quality. A most enjoyable disc." PENGUIN GUIDE 'Rosette' **** PENGUIN GUIDE 2010.
