Didn't catch this the first time around.  Nicholas Rimmer is a very fine pianist; if he's good enough for Nils Monkemeyer, he's good enough for me.  I think I shall obtain this recording.
Rimmer has made a couple previous appearances for Naxos accompanying cellist Gabriel Schwabe in Brahms and Schumann, and violinist Tianwa Yang in Wolfgang Rihm, which is a good example of two artists I like recording repertoire I'll never want to hear them playing.

Already starting to see JULY RELEASES announced...











with the original finale to No. 2 and played on two Conrad Graf pianos from 1818 and "1832/24" (??) + a Franz Bayer piano c. 1825

In June:



Very interesting! While tonal, both concerti are very much 20th-century in their language. All of Hyperion’s previous releases in this series have (to my knowledge) contained concerti that are unquestionably “Romantic” in idiom, so this is a bit of a departure for them. The Bliss is a big-boned, exciting work and the Rubbra is much more introverted, even austere at times, but has moments of great originality and color. A new recording of the latter is particularly welcome!

Perhaps a new mastering has improved scarce sound quality of Decca edition

Very nice. I rather enjoy this symphony.

I couldn't agree more with you, Kyle. Both concertos are splendid in their own terms.

Is this a new re-issue Japanese release?
