Lessel piano music

Post by Rach3 » Wed Jul 04, 2018 1:22 pm

Student of Haydn, generation ahead of Chopin, influence on the Chopin concerti , especially Chopin’s E minor, apparent :

Franciszek Lessel (1780-1838)
Piano Concerto in C Op 14 ( ca. 1814 )
Leonora Armellini (piano), Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Pawel Przytocki (conductor), live.

Or , at YouTube ( different forces , I heard only the BBCR3 above ) :


Howard Shelley with Sinfonia Varsovia released in 2012 a cd of the Concerto :


Per Wiki : Among his most noted pieces is his Fantaisie in E minor, Op.13,which was dedicated to Cecylia Beydale. Beydale was for a time his lover, until they discovered they had the same mother.

That Fantaisie ( cd ) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_G2KWJltY54

More interesting than the Concerto, I thought.Influence on Chopin's Op.49 Fantasy ?
