Description: The first concerto of 1893 is a huge, four-movement work of 45 minutes, Brahmsian in its opening theme and key relationships, with a hint of Saint-Saƫns in its brief, light-footed scherzo but which then turns Nordic in its final two movements. Only the second recording of the original version (only discovered in the 1980s) and apparently only the second recording of No. 2 also - a much more concise four-movement work of about half an hour from 1907 which is in the composer's mature style. Seta Tanyel (piano), Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra; Andrew Manze.
