Notes & Reviews:

This fourth installment of the Geza Anda edition in the SWR music / Haenssler CLASSIC historical series presents the first and the last of Beethoven's piano concertos. As in other recordings before, Anda performs in the First Concerto as both soloist and conductor. These recordings of Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 1 and Piano Concerto No. 5 are areal enrichment of the Anda discography - no other recording of this concert has ever been released.

MusicWeb International, 18th November 2013
He starts [No. 1] with a buoyant tempo. Phrases are well shaped and articulated. There is crystal-clear playing in the fast passages. The slow movement is poetic and expressive, and he conjures up a beautiful rounded tone...The highlight [of the Emperor] is the slow movement, where Anda delivers a poignantly expressive reading.
