Brahms was 48 years old and at the height of his powers when he completed his Piano Concerto No. 2. The Olympian B flat Concerto is, famously, not only one of the most technically challenging of all piano concertos to play but also one of the longest and a supreme test of the soloist’s technique and stamina. Not far behind it in terms of the challenges it presents the soloist with, is the early Burleske for piano and orchestra by Richard Strauss.

Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach had begun his series für Kenner und Liebhaber – ‘for Connaisseurs and Amateurs’ – with the traditional formula of a set of six sonatas, but became more unconventional in the second and third collection in which he alternated three sonatas with three rondos. With the fourth instalment, published in 1783, he went further still as he increased the number of pieces to seven and added ‘free fantasias’ to the sonatas and rondos.

Jon Nakamatsu is ideally suited to Schumann: he has the staggering technique expected from a Van Cliburn winner but also poetry and delicacy are uppermost in his playing. His nine recordings for harmonia mundi USA range from Chopin and Brahms, via Rachmaninov to Gershwin, and most recently the Brahms Piano Quintet with the Tokyos. His next recording will be of Brahms, Beethoven and Weber with Clive Greensmith, formerly of the Tokyo String Quartet and Jon Manasse on clarinet.

The „Lobgesang“ (or „Hymn of Praise“) was commissioned by the city of Leipzig from its Kapellmeister Mendelssohn to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the invention of printing in 1840, and has elements of the symphony, cantata and oratorio. But, at the opposite pole from Beethoven’s Ninth, we have here a symphonic miniature in three movements, intended to act as the overture to the sung part of the work, which is twice as long. Thus this splendid „Symphony-Cantata“ expands into a sweeping vocal and choral epic.
