Music of Sergei Bortkiewicz

I'm just getting into the music of Sergei Bortkiewicz and wonder if anybody might have any recommendations regarding particular recordings. If you have any favorites, please share.

Thanks in advance!

Len you're a head of me-I never even heard of the guy-am listening to his piano concerto 1 at youtube and this is my kind of classical music-I think I'll be forced to download all his concertos for future listening-thanks! Regards, Len :D

Hi Len --

Hyperion has served Bortkiewicz rather well. Stephen Coombs has recorded a double album (2 for the price of 1) of solo piano music, as well as the composer's piano concerto. Martyn Brabbins has recorded the Symphonies 1 & 2. I recommend all of them.

I'm really glad you like him, I find his music very interesting and definitely worth to be explored further.

Thank you very much - I'm really glad to hear that all those recordings come recommended; gives me a lot of new material to listen to this Spring.
