The Les Humphries Singers was a 1970s musical group formed in Hamburg, Germany in 1969 by the English-born Les Humphries (born John Leslie Humphreys, 10 August 1940, in Croydon, Surrey, England - died 26 December 2007, in Basingstoke, Hampshire, England). The Les Humphries Singers dissolved at the end of the 1970s. Humphries moved back to Alton, Hampshire in England and later moved to London.

Humphries Singers, Les - Original Album Series (5-CD Slipcase) CD 3. 01. Sing Hallelujah. With their terrific renditions of standards and Les's own material. They really reached 'Super Stardom' in 1972, The Les Humphries Group appeared on TV with their latest single '01' Man Mose'/'Going Down Jordan' (March), both sides became enormous hits. The group swiftly followed up their first chart topper with 'Take Care Of Me'/'Mary Turn The Lamp Down Low' (May), another hit and another great sing-a-long song. The Les Humphries 'Sound' was a guaranteed tonic.

Piano Concerto N. In D Minor, O. 5 - 2. Adagio by Sir Clifford Curzon & London Symphony Orchestra & George Szell. 3. 30. Piano Concerto N. 5 - 3. Rondo (Allegro Non Troppo). by Sir Clifford Curzon & London Symphony Orchestra & George Szell. Rondo (Allegro Non Troppo) by Sir Clifford Curzon & London Symphony Orchestra & George Szell. However, I find it attractive because of its boxier, more claustrophobic piano sound which benefits Curzon-he sounds more aggressive and fiery than was sometimes his wont. The third movement is not unexpectedly poetic/rhapsodic while the finale lilts in a Schubertian way. And Kna is by no means too slow, taking about 48 minutes-in the neighborhood of Szell/Serkin II, Fleisher/Szell and Larrocha/Jochum (livelier than the Gilels/Jochum version).

The Piano Concerto No. 1 in B♭ minor, Op. 23, was composed by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky between November 1874 and February 1875. It was revised in the summer of 1879 and again in December 1888. The first version received heavy criticism from Nikolai Rubinstein, Tchaikovsky's desired pianist. Piano Concerto No. 1 - Tchaikovsky (Two Pianos, Four Hands).

The concerto itself was no laughing matter for Grieg, though. Instead, it was a pretty weighty, serious affair. At the age of twenty-five, the young Norwegian composer was determined to make his mark on the world with this, his first work to employ an orchestra. From the thunderous roll of the timpani in the opening bars, Grieg sounds totally assured and in command of his orchestral writing throughout this concerto – and yet, he was far from experienced in composing for such large forces. The work was an instant success and many expected Grieg to replicate it soon after with a second concerto.
