These composers, born towards the end of the 18th century, were just beginning to benefit from new advances inthe development of the piano; it would be up to their successors to exploit these fully. Thalberg is not forgotten, with his Piano Concerto N. showcasing the composer and pianist’s penchant for virtuosity, even if it was written in his teens. The perfect starting point for exploring Romantic piano music. It features historic recordings of a truly excellent standard, including Blumental with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra under Helmuth Froschauer, the Orchestra of Radio Luxembourg with Pierre Cao accompanying French pianist Dosse, Boehm with the Westphalian Symphony Orchestra under Siegfried Landau, and Antal Doráti conducting the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra with Ilse von Alpenheim.

The main work of the disc, both in terms of quality and length, is of course the above-mentioned Henselt F minor Concerto, which, although once an active participant in the repertoire of most top league pianists during the late nineteenth century (at least those sufficiently technically equipped to approach it), dropped out of sight in the early part of this century until. revived by those 'champions of the forgotten', Raymond Lewenthal and Michael Ponti. As a concerto it is particularly 'giving' to the listener and very unforgiving to the pianist, as the extreme technical.
Liszt was probably the best known of this type of composer, and Henselt and Alkan are also good examples. Although some composers produced romantic-orientated symphonies, in general the symphony is seen as a serious, work where the composer knew he would be compared with Beethoven. The contrary is the case for the many romantic piano concertos which are designed to show of the skill of the pianist and be pleasing to the audience by the use of catchy tunes.
The Piano Trio No. 4 in E minor, Op. 90, B. 166, (also called Dumky trio from the subtitle Dumky) is a composition by Antonín Dvořák for piano, violin and cello. It is among the composer's best-known works. At the same time it is a prominent example for a piece of chamber music deviating strongly from the customary form of classical chamber music – both in terms of the number of movements and of their formal construction.
But who are the greatest pianists of all time? Classical and Baroque periods of music history definitely increased the popularity of the piano and almost every genre of music in today’s culture also uses it! It’s no wonder that mastering the art of playing the piano is such a desirable goal. It is also an instrument that once learned, makes it easier to learn other instruments and is popular among young music students. This list features the all time greatest piano players, includin, Frédéric Chopin, Franz Liszt, and Sergei Rachmaninoff.
