Thankyou for the link - I listened to the first five minutes and personally thought the music neither to be the masterpiece that John enthused about fifteen years ago or the disaster you feel it to be. What did strike me is that with the Hyperion Romantic Piano Concerto series now past 60 volumes (volume 1 must date from much the same time as this disc) that series is replete with similar music in a very similar style - for good or ill!
All any reviewer can do is share his sincere response to a work. With the advent of YouTube perhaps the cautious purchaser should "try before they buy" in such circumstances.
