Notes & Reviews:

Beethoven's five great piano concertos give evidence not only of outstanding pianistic skills, but also of an iron will with regard to taking great strides forward in their composition. Now you can indulge in Beethoven's Piano Concerto Nos. 3 & 5 in the intended sound quality as when they were recorded. The pianist here is the idiosyncratic virtuoso and now well-regarded conductor, Christoph Eschenbach. The Third Concerto, op. 37, finds the pianist in the conducting company of the great 20th c. composer Hans Werner Henze and the LSO; the "Emperor" with the Boston Symphony and its conductor of three decades, Seiji Ozawa. New developments in audio playback technology (specifically the multi-channel SACD) since these Deutsche Grammophon recordings were originally made in the 1970s now allow for hearing these works as all involved in its recording conceived them thanks to Pentatone's labor of love in re-mastering and re-releasing this disc to market in this format.
