Click on the link here for Audio Player: Delannoy Piano Concerto – 1955
Delannoy’s music has fallen into some neglect since his death in 1962. He was a prolific composer who wrote a wide variety of music, from chamber to vocal. He has been known probably most recently for his many film scores.
This weekend it’s his Concerto di Maggio, which hasn’t been recorded commercially and, by all appearances, this is the only recording of this work. From a broadcast performance over Paris Radio (ORTF) circa 1955 featuring a collaboration by two celebrated figures on the French music scene in the 1950’s.
Another rare one to add to your collection.
