CD Review- BBC Music Magazine on Gál and Mozart Piano Concertos with Sarah Beth Briggs and Royal Northern Sinfonia

A fantastic review from Eric Levi for the recent Avie Records recording of Gál and Mozart Piano Concertos with Sarah Beth Briggs and the Royal Northern Sinfonia in the August, 2016 issue of BBC Music Magazine.

“It’s something of a mystery as to why this attractive and accessible work enjoyed only a few performances in Britain and Germany before falling into complete oblivion. Whatever the reasons, I cannot imagine it receiving a more convincing account than the one given here. Sarah Beth Briggs has the necessary breadth and depth of tone and touch to navigate both the barnstorming bravura passages in the first movement and the delicate filigree in the figuration in the introspective slow movement. Her partnership with Kenneth Woods, already a seasoned interpreter of this composer’s works, is also impressive, the conductor securing commitment and incisiveness from the Royal Northern Sinfonia.”
