CDS 1077-2 Friedrich von Flotow (1812-1883): Piano Concertos Nos. 1 & 2; Wilhelm von Oranien in Whitehall, incidental music; Jubel Overture. Carl Petersson, piano; Pilsen Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Hans Peter Wiesheu
An entirely new perspective on Friedrich von Flotow's compositions. This composer is best known on account of his opera Martha. Here we find newly discovered concertos, which must be considered as sensational. The first is brilliant and melodic, the second is probably influenced by Carl Maria von Weber's concertos. The Oranien suite is most charming, with Thomas Arne's Rule Britannia as one of the movements.
