Gramophone Reviews Clélia Iruzun’s new Piano Concertos recording!

Clélia Iruzun, Jac van Steen, and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s new Oswald & Saint-Saëns Piano Concertos recording is in the Gramophone Awards Issue:

“ I was at least charmed by the … reading by Clélia Iruzun and Jac van Steen. I warmed to the slow movement, with its echoes of Fauré, and thoroughly enjoyed the tarantella finale. … The Egyptian Concerto of Saint-Saëns comes off very well… by judicious pacing, Iruzun and van Steen build to an impressively executed peroration. With commendable initiative, Iruzun adds as a makeweight the Suite antiga (‘Suite in the Old Style’) by another Brazilian, Alberto Nepomuceno (1864-1920). … As on their earlier album of Mignone and Albéniz concertos (2/18), the artists have been well served by recording engineer Ben Connellan. Altogether, another rewarding disc from this team and this label.”
