Catalogue Number: 04L015
Description: As monumental a work (38 minutes in three movements) as his third symphony (offered in 2004), this piano concerto from 1930 is still highly contrapuntal and harmonically complex but easier to follow at first listening and fits in with such works of its time as those by Furtwängler and Hindemith. The Fantasie (1924) is a 19-minute single-movement work of much the same preoccupations. Joseph Banowetz (piano), Russian Philharmonic Orchestra; Thomas Sanderling.
