Quote from: OrchestralNut on March 04, 2023, 04:35:33 AM+1 on the André Mathieu 4th Piano Concerto in E minor. The "French Canadian Rachmaninov". 😎 I think it is quite the work!

Quote from: kyjo on March 05, 2023, 07:45:39 AMGlad to see Alwyn's PC no. 2 receiving so much attention in this thread - it's one of his very finest works in my view. Big thumbs-up as well for the Atterberg, RVW, and Arnold works, the latter of which is truly concerto-like in scope. I wish I could find a recording of the Søderlind concerto!
Quote from: Løvfald on March 05, 2023, 02:41:07 PMI have yet to hear the Lloyd. A shame it's not available for streaming at least.

Quote from: Florestan on March 07, 2023, 02:23:28 AMQuite the claim but I'm afraid I have to disagree. I've just listened to this concerto in the Hyperion recording (Piers Lane / Andrew Litton / Bergen PO). The only tune that stays in my head is... the one that resembles Rachmaninoff's most famous variation in the Paganini Rhapsody. No, really, I can think of a dozen concertos whose melodies are much more memorable: Schumann, Grieg, Tchaikovsky 1, Mendelssohn (both), Chopin (both), Brahms (both), Rachmaninoff 2 and 3 --- and that without even mentioning Mozart and Beethoven.Really sorry to spoil your party, Kyle, but I can't help it.
Quote from: kyjo on March 07, 2023, 05:44:06 AMWhere's the "dislike" button?? I would've thought this concerto would be right up your alley, Andrei. Oh well, there's no accounting for taste!
QuoteAlso, FYI the Alnaes was composed 20 years before Rach's Paganini Rhapsody.
Quote from: Florestan on March 07, 2023, 08:19:52 AMDon't get me wrong, Kyle: I did like it. A lot. What I can't agree with is your assertion that it is "probably the most gloriously melodic PC I know by anyone, even above Rachmaninoff!!". I'm sorry but in terms of memorable tunefulness it doesn't come even close to Rachmaninoff 2.I am aware of that. The resemblance is a mere coincidence: first, there is no evidence that Rachmaninoff knew the Alnaes and second, Rachmaninoff's tune is simply the inversion of Paganini's.
