GEORGE FRIDERIC HANDEL (1685-1759): Piano Concertos, Op. 4, Nos. 1-6.
Catalogue Number: 11P020
Reference: 777 837-2
Description: Period performance practice takes a 180 in this adaptation of Handel's organ concertos for the modern Steinway. We say adaptation since the subtitle of this disc reads "after the original version for organ" but there are no detailed notes about how the pianist here accomplished this. Perverse fun perhaps for people who like Stokie transcriptions et al. Matthias Kirschnereit (piano), Deutsche Kammerakademie Neuss; Lavard Skou Larsen. SACD hybrid
