Shostakovich's two Piano Concertos lack the seriousness of this four concertos for violin or cello. The first is actually a "double" concerto, having an important part for solo trumpet. It's an early but expertly written work sharing the same musical climate as the First Symphony. The Second Concerto was created for the composer's son Maxim, now a well-known conductor. It's a light- hearted, tongue-in-cheek piece with a Romantic slow movement.

The circumstances surrounding this April 6, 1962 concert at Carnegie Hall are as legendary as the performance itself. Pianist Gould desired to play the piece at a slower-than-usual tempo, Bernstein (who was conducting the New York Philharmonic) did not. Gould prevailed, but Bernstein shared his disavowal in an infamous pre-concert speech to the audience. This CD-the concert recording's first authorized release-includes Bernstein's speech, the complete performance and a revealing Glen Gould interview recorded two years later.

Rudolf Serkin's 1964 recording of Beethoven's Piano Concerto in C minor is surely among the greatest recordings of the work ever made, and certainly his finest performance of the work. The energy and enthusiasm and even passion he brings to Concerto in C minor is overwhelming, and indeed, it overwhelms Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic, who accompany Serkin with the sort of commitment that only a conductor and orchestra give to soloists when they are deeply inspired. But while Serkin's 1962 recording of Beethoven's Piano Concerto in E flat major is also surely among the greatest recordings of the work ever made, it is not quite Serkin's finest recording of the work.

Peter Bernstein has long been a unique voice in jazz music, and this album provides listeners a fresh, unfiltered view of his approach. Bernstein weaves beautiful melodic lines through rich harmonies and lush chord voicings. The rubato intros on many of the tunes artfully set the tone for a gracefully stated melody, leading way to some swinging improvisations where the time is thick and one can almost hear the rhythm section. In this solo setting, Bernstein's harmonic freedom and inventiveness is readily apparent both as he pays homage to Monk and Coltrane…

This set is a remarkable bargain, containing all of Brahms's solo piano music, including such chips from his workshop as cadenzas for other composers' concertos and a series of strictly mechanical piano studies that nobody will want to listen through. No matter. Idil Biret has a firm grasp of Brahms's idiom, and she plays with insight and passion throughout the set. Although she doesn't startle with her virtuosity, she handles the considerable technical demands of the music with great confidence.

When we endeavour to grasp the composer Arthur Lourié, we encounter some difficulties. He was born as Naum Izrailevich Lur'ya in 1892, according to his own statements and documents, but there is also evidence for 1891. At the age of 21, the born Jew converted to Christianity; he was a charismatic bohemian and Soviet cultural politician who did not return from a so-called official journey to Berlin in 1922 and was a pioneer of Modernism in music, enjoying mingling among the poets and painters of the Silver Age and being inspired by them.

In the prior review, I referred to 'the prodigious piano artistry of Dick Hyman,' and that description can also be applied to Rossano Sportiello. On Pastel (Arbors 19454), which could be subtitled The Gentle Side of Rossano Sportiello, he has chosen an eclectic program, that includes selections from classical music, the Great American Songbook, jazz, and a couple of originals, to create 13 tracks of pure delight. He is particularly sagacious in pairing the likes of Grieg's 'Arietta op. 21' with 'Like Someone in Love,' and Debussy's 'Doctor Gradus ad Parnassum' with 'Lush Life.'
