Notes & Reviews:

This disc features pianist Olli Mustonen as soloist and conductor in Beethoven's joyful and popular Piano Concertos Nos. 1 and 2. Praised by The London Sunday Times as "a living dream of pianism, having broken through an expressive barrier that other players do not know exists," Mustonen is known for delivering a fresh and visionary approach to popular standard repertoire music, such as Beethoven's music. This is the first of three volumes featuring the five Beethoven Piano Concertos and the piano version of the Violin Concerto on hybrid SACD, all performed by Olli Mustonen in the role as soloist and conductor of the Tapiola Sinfonietta.

Gramophone Magazine
Whatever the ultimate judgement on Mustonen's interpretations, one cannot deny either the brilliance or imagination of his playing, or the consistency of his approach.
