The latest installment in Hyperion’s ongoing series of the Romantic Piano Concerto brings together works by Hans Pfitzner and Walter Braunfels dating from the twilight of German Romanticism. The Braunfels work, Tag- und Nachtstücke, is a concerto in all but name. Pfitzner’s concerto stands as one of his most impressive orchestral works. Both are heroically dispatched by pianist Markus Becker, with Constantin Trinks and his Berlin Radio Symphony forces providing idiomatic support.
