Notes & Reviews:

Abbado 2008 is a celebration of the 75th birthday (June) of Claudio Abbado, "the most respected living conductor" (The New York Times). One of the greatest Beethoven 'Piano Concerto' cycles of recent times, from Abbado and fellow countryman Maurizio Pollini, returns to the catalogue at an attractive price (3-for-2). A brand-new recording of Beethoven's 'Triple Concerto' fills out the package, with Maestro Abbado conducting the Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra of Venezuela (about whom Abbado has said, "[This] young orchestra's devotion to music [has] deeply impressed me.") and a dynamic trio of soloists.
