By far the most familiar genre of music for piano and orchestra is the piano concerto. What the seven works gathered on this new CD demonstrate is that the formal concerto is by no means the only way of treating the instrumental combination. Joel Fan, recognized for his work as a member of the Silk Road ensemble, is joined by Northwest Sinfonietta and Music Director Christophe Chagnard for works of Pierné, Castro, Chopin, Saint-Saëns, Weber, Gottschalk and Cadman.
This is a beautiful CD with a wide range of unique works, all written in 2013.
