KHCD-2012-028DL (MONO) - Grieg: Concerto in a minor for Piano And Orchestra, Op. 16 - Alexander Jenner, pianist - Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra/Odd Grüner-Hegge; Liszt: Concerto No. in E-flat for Piano and Orchestra; Concerto No. 2 in A for Piano and Orchestra - Edith Farnadi, pianist - Vienna State Opera Orchestra/Hermann Scherchen - Austrian pianist Alexander Jenner made few recordings during his career, but those that are extant are of high quality in performance. He recorded two LPs for Don Gabor's Remington Label, as well as Concert Hall Society, Classique, Ariola, and Bertlesmann. It is the latter label that recorded the Grieg concerto, reissued on World Record Club in mono (from which this CD is transcribed). Detailed and well played, it is also quite a good recording. Thanks to John Whitmore for his transcription of the WRC Grieg disc. The two Liszt concerti feature Hungarian pianist Edith Farnadi, who recorded primarliy for Westminster. These performances were taped by Wesminster in 1952 in robust mono, and this transcription is from a red label LP in good condition
