[ Hyperion Romantic Piano Concerto Vol 80 / CD ]
Release Date: Friday 31 January 2020
The figures of Auguste Dupont and Peter Benoit may be little known outside their native Belgium, yet both enjoyed pianistic and pedagogical success in their lifetimes. Benoit's symphonic poem is a piano concerto in all but name, ending with a spiritedly Mephistophelean 'fantastical hunt'.
