Format:Audio CD
I like the fact that at last some of the more ambitious works by Tomasek are recorded here. The concertos are said to resemble the larger concertos by Mozart and the first two by Beethoven. And indeed they are played like the grand concertos by Beethoven, with a large orchestral body and modern grand piano. Nowadays we like this to be toned down somewhat and the renderings given sound oldfashioned, especially as I suppose much detail is simply not apparent in the playing of the piano-part. I hope one day a more idiomatic interpretation will appear, but for now Iam grateful these concertos were recorded. (to get an idea of the shades possible on a fortepiano, try Chris Seed playing the Eclogues of Tomasek on Olympia OCD 689)
