Description:

Romantic Piano Concertos Vol. 62! Hyperion's "Romantic Piano Concerto Series" is a series of discoveries and revival of unknown piano concertos of the Romantic era. The 62nd concerto in the series is a concerto for a "pedal piano" with foot keys like an organ. Liszt, Schumann, and Alkan have written works for this pedal piano, but they are rarely performed or recorded, so this recording will be a rare find. Charles Gounod (1818-1893) was a French opera composer famous for his opera "Faust" and his "Ave Maria," an arrangement of Bach's Prelude No. 1 from the "Mean Clavier," among other works. Along with Alkan, Gounod wrote several works for pedal piano, and this is the complete collection of his "Works for Pedal Piano and Orchestra.All four pieces were composed between 1885 and 1889, in the last years of Gounod's life. This time, instead of the original pedal piano, a pedal piano with the "Pinch System" invented by Claudio Pinch and Roberto Procida in 2012 was used. Italian pianist Roberto Proceda, who is making his Hyperion debut, is the co-designer of the Pinch System, and has also worked on works by Schumann, Boeri, and Alkan, as well as by Ennio Morricone and Michael Michael Schumann. He is a leading pedal piano virtuoso whose repertoire includes works by Schumann, Boeri, and Alkan, as well as pedal piano works written for him by Ennio Morricone, Michael Nyman, and others. He is a leading pedal piano player whose repertoire includes works by Schumann, Boeri, and Arkan, as well as works written for him by Ennio Morricone, Michael Nyman, and others. Tokyo M-Plus
