Hyperion: The Romantic Piano Concertos Series

Hyperion: The Romantic Piano Concertos Series

50 CD

The concept of The Romantic Piano Concerto series was born at a lunch meeting between Hyperion and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra sometime in 1990. A few months later tentative plans had been made for three recordings, and the first volume, of concertos by Moszkowski and Paderewski, was recorded in June 1991.

In our wildest dreams, none of us involved then could ever have imagined that the series would still be going strong twenty years later, and with fifty volumes to its credit.

These first fifty volumes include 131 works for piano and orchestra, 102 of which are titled ‘Concerto’, the remainder being generally shorter single-movement works or sets of variations. Fifty-nine of these works are premiere recordings and many other featured works have only been recorded once before, often in clearly inferior versions and frequently cut.
