|love to watch and hear a good piano concerto|
There are so many beautiful piano concertos it is hard to pick out the most beautiful movements of them all.
The Tales, daring to go where no man has gone will attempt to choose the top 5 most beautiful of all the beautiful movements in the piano concerto repertoire. 🙂 Of course, this is a matter of opinion so this is the Tales’ opinion of the top 5 and not meant to be a consensus of classical music experts, which I certainly do not include myself.
I know, I know when you see the Tales picks I could get some feedback, “how could you miss this one or that one”, and that will be okay. Just remember, this is the Tales blog, so I’m going with it.
In choosing the top 5, I didn’t go out to choose 5 different composers but that is how it turned out. And these just happen to be 5 of the giant composers in classical music: Chopin, Mozart, Beethoven, Rachmaninoff and Mendelssohn.
Please turn up the volume and enjoy the Tales top 5 most beautiful piano concerto movements.
