Felix Mendelssohn
Heimkehr aus der Fremde Overture & Concerto in E
& Frédéric Chopin Grand Concerto

[SACD Hybrid Stereo]

Dutton Epoch's first recording with Royal Northern Sinfonia features pianist Victor Sangiorgio, brilliant in two romantic concertos of the mid-nineteenth century but given a modern twist: Martin Yates' realisation of the surviving fragments of Mendelssohn's unfinished Piano Concerto in E and Balakirev's very Russian orchestration of Chopin's Piano Concerto no.1. With this realisation of the Mendelssohn Piano Concerto, Martin Yates has produced another compelling performing edition that stands alongside other similar projects for Dutton Epoch such as his realisation of E. J. Moeran's Sketches for Symphony no.2. Balakirev scored Chopin's Concerto at the very end of his life. He viewed it as a Grand Concerto, and with its use of modern brass and the cor anglais, he brings a Russian flavour to Chopin's sound-world that has to be heard.

“The Overture is unmistakably Mendelssohn … it is, ipso facto, quite delightful.” Jeremy Nicolas, Gramophone, June 2015

“… an out-of-the-ordinary recording … brings together some Mendelssohn rarities with Balakirev’s reimagining of the Chopin Piano Concerto.” “This sample is utterly enchanting, and the RNS under Martin Yates responds withatmospheric and affectionate playing.” Jessica Duchen, BBC Music Magazine
