Notes & Reviews:

2011 will see the release of three new discs on the Brana Records label of the complete Beethoven Piano Concertos, performed by Felicja Blumental with Robert Wagner conducting the Vienna Symphony Orchestra. Felicja Blumental was born in Warsaw where she studied at the National Conservatory, and she later appeared with orchestras throughout Europe including the Philharmonia, RPO, LPO, LSO, and Scottish National Orchestra. She was greatly admired by leading 20th Century composers who wrote pieces especially for her. Villa-Lobos dedicated his fifth piano concerto to her which she performed with the leading orchestras around Europe and recorded for EMI with the Orchestre National in Paris. This is the first release in a series of three discs featuring all six of Beethoven's piano concerti.
