Though the name "Schoenberg" makes some people cringe, the Schoenberg piano concerto is a wonderful and highly expressive work. Though composed in the 12-tone style, it contains the same degree of lyricism and rhythmic drive that other, non-12-tone pieces have. Ax gives this concerto what it deserves- a highly sensitive performance that shows the concerto is a true piece of music rather than the product of a mechanical compositional process.
I'll admit I bought this disc primarily for the Schoenberg, but have enjoyed listening to both Liszt concerti as well. Though these works are at times looked down upon as inferior pieces, Ax reminds us that Liszt opened up an entirely new world of piano technique and sound. His performance is full of color, energy, and excitement.
