Description: Czerny’s 1825 four-hands concerto is notable not just for its flurries and cascades of piano notes but also for the fully realized orchestral accompaniment, as if it were one of his symphonies. Rarer on disc are Viotti’s own piano transcriptions of two violin concertos, even keeping the violin part of No. 3. 2 CDs. David Boldrini (piano), Elena Pinciaroli (four hands), Augusto Visimara (violin), Rami Musicali Orchestra; Massimo Belli.
