Notes & Reviews:

Accompanied by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by the great conductor Bernard Haitink, this was a first for television - the five Concertos had never been transmitted live previously. Hardly any video footage exists commercially of Ashkenazy at the piano, which makes this set a must-have for fans and wider audiences alike.

All 5 Beethoven Piano Concertos available together for the first time on DVD... part of Decca's Ashkenazy Celebration campaign in 2007. Unique video of all five Beethoven Piano Concertos, played by a young Vladimir Ashkenazy at the height of his piano-playing career. Hardly any video footage exists commercially of Ashkenazy at the piano, which makes this set a must-have for fans and wider audiences alike. Accompanied by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by the great conductor Bernard Haitink, this was a first for television - the five Concertos had never been transmitted live previously. As these are live concerts, the programmes also include several Beethoven overtures and the complete Symphony No.8. Filmed and transmitted live at London's iconic Royal Festival Hall - see the hall in all its old splendour for the final time, before it reopens later this year after a complete internal makeover.
