"Rescues"? Overlooked?

It's fairly frequently performed in the UK, including by Benjamin Grosvenor at the BBC Proms (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lD7gjmvM66M)

....and Steven Osborne, Peter Donohoe etc. Sviatoslav Richter has recorded it with the composer conducting.

I can't access the review, but I hope it wasn't Andsnes who claimed that (like he claimed he 'discovered' Sibelius's piano music when he released his recent CD of it).........

Still, as they say, the more the merrier grin.

If he said he discovered Sibelius' music I think he meant his personal discovery. As far as the frequency of performance of the Britten Concerto in the U.S., it was last performed with the NY Philharmonic 36 years ago.

I wonder what we on this forum would do all day without pianoloverus to post links to 97 New York Times concert reviews a week, starting a new thread for each one.

He certainly was the first to helicopter a grand piano up a mountain in the Hardanger range and play Grieg there:
https://www.npr.org/2008/02/22/19238898/leif-ove-andsnes-pianist-on-the-precipice

I have it on good authority (his wink ) that no CGI was involved.

But hey, he probably got the idea from Ben Nevis, where a piano was carted up to my, er, I mean its summit over forty years ago. bennevis wasn't there at the time to play Grieg on Ben Nevis, unfortunately....... cry

A lot of the members wouldn't know about and be able to read reviews of major pianists performing in major venues. If you don't have any interest, just don't read them.

Maybe the admin or one of the moderators could create a sticky thread for such posts?

I, too, find PL's NYT review offerings on PW interesting and informative. I think that we all recognize New York as one of the cultural centres of North America, and getting reviews - even though each one reflects the opinion of a NYT reviewer - is an enlightening insight into what is current and considered important in the classical (piano) music world.

Keep them coming, PL.

Now, if we could just get PL to post links rather than URLs that we have to copy and paste,

Britten Piano Concerto

I would but I don't know how to do it. I know you already gave me the instructions once that I did follow once correctly but then I forgot how to do it. Actually, by looking at your example, I think I just figured out how to do it. I must be a computer genius!

... and for the record:

1) Copy URL.
2) In "Reply" (or "New Thread" if you are starting a thread), go to "Use Full Editor" screen
3) Click on "Insert Link" (fifth box from the right on the menu bar)
4) At top of screen, a box appears : "Enter the URL for your link" Paste the URL into that box.
5) Click on "OK". A blank box will appear to enable you to enter the (short!) title of the link.
6) Hit "Enter" and the link will be posted in your post at the point where you left the cursor.

The above works for linking a video as well.

To insert a YouTube video directly into a post rather than just giving a link to it, at step 3, click on "Insert Media Tag" (10th icon from the left or right) the drop-down menu will give you the option of "YouTube video."
4) Then click on "OK". The video will be inserted in your post at the point where you left the cursor



Regards,


BruceD
