Medtner's 3 Piano Concertos... .
Posted by SE on July 11, 2021 at 05:11:35:
can be found spread across 3 BIS CD's recorded by Yevgeny Sudbin (paired with works by Rachmaninoff, Tchaikovsky, Scriabin). There are other recordings, but Sudbin is terrific and...it's BIS! Hamelin has recorded the Piano Sonata full cycle on Hyperion -- in fact, the Hyperion label has numerous VERY interesting Medtner issues.
For Tanayev, I'll cut to the chase...the Oresteia Overture is one of the greatest short orchestral works ever written by anybody. It has it ALL, power, passion, melody -- just phenomenal! Don't miss the Jarvi recording on Chandos paired with Symphony 4. Slightly tubby "classic Chandos sound" but awesome nonetheless!:-)
Finally, explore Anton Arensky as well.
