Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, Howard Shelley pf. Hyperion (F) CDA68100 (65' DDD). Public taste is a fickle thing. Howard Shelley is clearly convinced; this is his third Hyperion disc devoted to Herz's works for piano and orchestra. Brahms it ain't (and all the better for that, you may well think). There is a high-spirited quality to everything here: even in C minor, the key of the Second Concerto, there's a kind of glee underlying the first orchestral tutti. But Herz could also write a gracious tune with the best of them, as witness the lyrical second idea of the concerto's first movement or the aria-like one that opens the Andantino.
Herz’s Piano Concerto No 2 in C minor, Op 74, composed around 1830, was still very much in his repertoire when he first arrived in America. He played it for his debut there (New York, 29 October 1846). So captivated was the audience by the Rondo that it was repeatedly interrupted with bursts of applause. The dotted figure of the concerto’s initial theme (Allegro moderato) and the ingratiating second subject, both announced by the orchestra, are not immediately taken up by the soloist; the piano’s vigorous entry derives from the repeated triplet/quaver figure first heard played by the strings and then adopted by the hushed timpani. Continuing with a fourth theme (another lyrical idea) and a reference to the first subject, it is only after an extended cadenza-like flourish that the piano returns to the second subject (5'13''). La Grande fantaisie militaire sur La fille du régiment, o. 63, de Herz fut publiée vers 1850.

Andante spianato et grande polonaise brillante in E-flat major, Op. 22, was composed by Frédéric Chopin between 1830 and 1834. The Grande polonaise brillante in E-flat, set for piano and orchestra, was written first, in 1830-31. In 1834, Chopin wrote an Andante spianato in G, for piano solo, which he added to the start of the piece, and joined the two parts with a fanfare-like sequence. The combined work was published in 1836, and was dedicated to Madame d'Este.
The Grande fantaisie militaire sur La Fille du Régiment positively sparkles with wit, and the military orchestration towards the end, replete with percussion and piccolo certainly brought a smile to my face. Perhaps Schumann would not have been amused. A lot of Herz’s writing for piano is fiendishly difficult and highly delicate, more filigree than barn-storming keyboard-bashing display, requiring sensitive handling. Directed from the keyboard by Howard Shelley the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra contributes a lean clear sound in a credible concert-hall balance, all captured in fine sound by Hyperion’s engineers.

The Grande Valse brillante in E♭ Major, Opus 18, was composed by Frédéric Chopin in 1833 and published in 1834. This was his first published waltz composition for solo piano, although prior to 1834 he had written at least sixteen waltzes that were either destroyed or eventually published posthumously. Chopin also gave the title Grand Valse brillante to the next three waltzes in the Opus 34 set, published in 1838.
