BBC Music Magazine November 2016 Concerto Choice
The first recording of Moritz Moszkowski’s long-lost—and eagerly awaited—early Piano Concerto makes for a particularly important addition to the Romantic Piano Concerto series. The coupling is another rarity (and recorded premiere): the Russian Rhapsody by Adolf Schulz-Evler.
Angelov dispatches the hugely taxing piano part with consummate virtuosity, and the orchestra respond with alert and strongly characterised playing under Vladimir Kirjadev…a very welcome addition to Hyperion’s invaluable Romantic Piano Concerto series. BBC *****
[the Moszkowski] is given an unstintingly engaged and engaging performance by pianist, conductor, and the BBC Scottish SO…Angelov’s experience of Chopin serves him well, helping him make the most of writing that abounds in a sense of rhapsody and silvery filigree. Add to that an exuberant virtuosity and a penchant for spinning a good tune, and you have a worthwhile addition to the series. Gramophone
