British pianist Sarah Beth Briggs, together with Gál aficionado Kenneth Woods conducting the Royal Northern Sinfonia, offers the world premiere recording of Hans Gál’s Concerto for Piano and Orchestra alongside Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 22 in E-flat, K. 482. Bringing to light another of Hans Gál’s gorgeously melodic and finely crafted scores, AVIE presents this recording of the Austrian émigré’s Concerto for Piano and Orchestra. Written in 1948, Gál’s large-scale romantic concerto abounds with sweeping phrases and pyrotechnics, yet at the heart of the piece lies the composer’s signature clarity and precision, making the work an ideal coupling for his 18th century Viennese compatriot Mozart’s great E-flat major concerto of 1785. The cadenzas selected for the Mozart Concerto, by Denis Matthews (originally written for Dame Myra Hess) also receive their first recorded performance on this disc
