Consummate ease and brilliance

Rapturous … highly recommended

Fanfare, Dave Saemann

Callaghan makes the case for both with flair and conviction

The Times, Stephen Pettitt
Two more impressive examples in Hyperion’s Romantic Piano Concerto series. The only piano concerto by Josef Rheinberger dates from 1877 and is a vast, rich work, owing as much to Brahms as to Schumann. And if Bernhard Scholz’s concerto (1883) is somewhat looser in feel, it too possesses surprising substance.

Callaghan makes the case for both with flair and conviction.
