Piano Concerto No. 2 in G-minor Op. 22 by : Camille Saint-Saens : Peter Jost
Given Saint-Saëns' talents both as pianist and composer; it stood to reason that he would engage with the piano concerto genre early on. But he gave a clear renunciation of the “concerto brilliant” that was dominant in France at that time; declaring instead that “the solo part of a concerto must be set out; and treated; like a dramatic role.” He realised this concept of a “symphonic concerto” in this second piano concerto; composed in 1868. The solo part is technically very challenging; and at the same time closely bound up with the orchestra. Johannes Umbreit is responsible for the piano reduction; based on the composer's own version for two pianos; Pascal Rogé supplies the fingerings for the solo part.
