A lovely new review this week from Graham Rickson at The Arts Desk for vol. 2 of the Complete Piano Concertos of Ernst Krenek on Toccata. Pianist Mikhail Korzhev is joined by Eric Huebner, Nurit Pacht, Adrian Partingtonunder the baton of Kenneth Woods, conductor.
“Volume 1 in this series was unexpectedly absorbing. All hail its successor…another example of Krenek’s gift for writing exuberant, approachable atonal music… Ken Woods’ hardworking English Symphony Orchestra acquit themselves brilliantly. Snap it up.”
