Throughout his lifetime that spanned nearly nine decades, Camille Saint-Saëns turned to the piano concerto five times as a vehicle not only to demonstrate his own considerable prowess on the instrument, but also to advance the concerto form and elaborate on his ideal relationship between soloist and orchestra. Ranging from the first concerto -- a model of youthful impetuousness and bravura -- to the fifth concerto written nearly four decades later -- an exploration of near-exoticism -- Saint-Saëns frequently experimented with new formats that challenged the traditional three-movement concerto. Of the five, the Second Concerto is by far the most frequently performed and ranks among the composer's best-known works overall. The other four works are not without their merits, though, and this Audite album that brings them all together on two hybrid SACDs is a welcome addition. Pianist Anna Malikova is joined by the WDR Sinfonieorchester Köln under Thomas Sanderling in a series of performances that makes all of the concertos just as exciting, dramatic, and intricate as the beloved Second. Malikova's playing is tight, with immaculate articulation, clear voicing, and nimble passagework. She demonstrates a clear connection with the score through her appropriately sentimental performance of slow movements, and her connection with the orchestra is organic and seamless. Audite's sound is especially clear and warm, and listeners utilizing the multichannel track will enjoy a nice sense of being in the midst of the orchestra. Listeners unfamiliar with concertos other than the second will find this set a welcome addition to their collections.

Julius Katchen: 50 Shades of Brahms

It may seem like every pianist alive today has tried their hand at Brahms - especially his last opuses from 116 to 119. But this hasn’t always been the case. Having started recording Brahms for Decca Records in 1962, the American pianist Julius Katchen was the first to complete the German composer’s entire piano works. Ten years later, the German pianist Peter Rösel followed in his footsteps, as well as a dozen or so others more recently.
