Reference: DOM 3810 20 + DOM 38
Description: The first of two releases this month duplicating world premiere recordings which came out on another label last November (11N003). All four were written between 1811 and 1813 and everything we said about the last three (i.e. "Classical, Mozartean form... suggesting Mozart but also Schubertian early Romanticism as well as the dreamy, nocturnal lyricism of Chopin (via Field and/or Hummel, one would think)", applies to No. 1 as well. 2 CDs. Angéline Pondepeyre (piano), Cologne Radio Symphony Orchestra; Conrad Van Alphen.
