Thanks for posting it -- and more congrats to Can, for such a lovely final appearance.
Too bad that the video cuts off the rest of his Schubert slow movement, although, the thing that cuts it off is presumably his concerto performance!

Great also to see those still-pics at the end, of him being celebrated as the winner.

Dear Pianoworld,

Apologies for my delayed response to your messages. I must say this was one of the most touching gestures I have encountered. Thank you for being with me all this time, for many, many years.

It is hard to believe what happened, obviously, and it is downright terrifying to be given such a prize. That is why I am writing only now; I wanted to wait until things settle down. Happiness comes with time and I have “come to terms” with what awaits in the following months/years and am looking forward to it very much. One asks himself/herself all sorts of questions, if the competition was well deserved, if one is ready for this and so on. But I came to realise, it matters in the end not at all. In a competition, each participant plays their heart out, and a jury hands out results. That has nothing to do with the playing part. Well, I happened to gain this accolade and I have the chance to work towards making music on the stage as a sustainable career.

Sorry for writing so long, but in such company I wanted to share some thoughts and feelings. I hope it also makes up an interesting read. Also, now that I have a lot of concerts going on, I am planning the programmes accordingly. I want to ask around here for some ideas for piano concerti. Precisely concerti that are (naturally) excellent music but also are approachable on the first hearing and are plausible for an orchestra to accept. So Furtwängler b Minor probably isn’t very logical smile. I have found some interesting stuff. Please add anything that occurs to you. Extra points for classical and early romantic concerti!!

-Schubert/Liszt Wanderer Fantasy
-Mendelssohn 2nd Concerto (why doesn’t anybody play this?!?!?!?)
-Padarewski Concerto
-Stenhammar One of the either Concerti
-Perhaps a Dussek Concerto?

I was looking very hard for a classical concerto that can stand against the usual suspects. But it is surprisingly difficult. Ferdinand Ries has some charming stuff but no way it is going to be interesting for 30 mins. same with Hummel and co. I like it very much but honestly, Chopin did the piano writing SO MUCH better. Dussek is the best of the lot so far but even he is such a far cry from any Mozart Concerto.

I am missing MANY names I am sure and I am ignorant to just as many. Looking forward to hearing from you!

And thank you very much again.

A contemporary of Chopin, but sounds more Classical:

This is more well-known but later:

Also have a look at the concertos of Scharwenka - Earl Wild made a famous recording of No.1:

Maybe just one of the lesser played Mozart Concerti. I'm not really familiar with the ones that aren't played much, but it seems like 20-27 and 9 are played much more than 10-19.

Great concerto! Fantastic recording!

Performed by none other than the now legendary pianist, Raymond Lewenthal.

He really does justice to this extraordinarily difficult work!

I don't think it's a good idea or worth the effort to learn any concerto just because it's rarely performed unless you think it's really as great as some of the great concerti in the standard rep.

For rarely performed piano concertos, I like Clara Schumann, John Field, and Hummel concertos.

And there are two Mendelssohn concertos for 2 pianos.

And I think Scriabin piano concerto is not often performed live (Maybe just my impression)?

I'll mention my own favourite, which I don't see performed very often: Prokofiev's 1st.

Thinking of Classical or early Romantic stuff off the beaten path, I remembered that I have long enjoyed the Moscheles g minor (no. 3), since I first got this recording of it many years ago on LP. I just found out today that the opening tutti was shortened, though.




By the way, I love the Stenhammer concertos you mentioned, too.

There are two showpieces for piano and orchestra by Mendelssohn and Chopin that are rarely heard today, but are quite delightful and sound like long lost cousins of their more famous concertos:

Mendelssohn Capriccio Brillante for Piano and Orchestra op.22

https://youtu.be/NTPCCrjCoMw

Chopin Rondo a la Krakowiak op 14

https://youtu.be/tWTlZsL_QWw

I first heard the Mendelssohn played by Rudolf Serkin on the radio a long time. I am particularly fond of the Mendelssohn piece, and it would be fantastic if it were played more often. Both pieces might work together (combined, the total time is close to half an hour, around the average length of a Mozart concerto).
