Notes & Reviews:

Pianist Bernd Glemser has won 17 international piano competitions including the famous Tchaikovsky competition held in Moscow.

Now to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the Duisburg Philharmonic Orchestra Glemser has recorded all five of Beethoven's piano concertos.

With conductor and original instrument specialist Bruno Weil at the podium these performances will become benchmarks for historically informed interpretations.

Bernd Glemser is today one of the world's most sought-after soloists.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
The Bernd Glemser set dates from 2003; an earlier release was given limited distribution (if any) in the US. Things get off to a good start with 1 and 2, both played with fleet-fingered elegance and nicely modulated dynamics. Glemser and the Duisburg players rally with a regal Emperor: powerful and energetic to the last drop. The performances were recorded in concert.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Theater am Marientor, Duisburg (04/09/2003-04/12/2003).
