Saint-Saens: Complete Piano Concertos / Tacchino, Froment
Saint Saëns’ piano concertos are deservedly popular, especially number 2 and 4, but also no. 5 (with the famous African sound experiments) is played regularly nowadays, being an immensely enjoyable and attractive crowd-pleaser. All of them abound in good tunes, glittering virtuosity and a general sense of French charm, wit and drama (but never too much…).
The reissue of one of the gems from the famous VOX catalogue: the complete Saint-Saëns Piano Concertos played by Gabriel Tacchino and the Orchestra of Radio Luxembourg, conducted by maitre Louis de Froment.
