ArtistsLouis Lortie (piano)
The brilliance, virtuosity, and technical perfection of Louis Lortieís playing encapsulate these unusual, yet exhilarating works. While the spirited, unconventional Concerto No.1 centres round a slow movement consisting of a dialogue between the sober orchestra and virtuosic piano, the technical requirements of No.2 are so high that Saint-SaŽns himself after its premiere admitted that his fluent technique was not quite up to the challenge. Finally, the unusual form and mixed musical ideas of No.4 make for a uniquely dramatic, passionate, and dream-like experience.
