Reviews

Awesome performances of the 5 Beethoven piano concertos!
Rudolf Buchbinder is insanely skilled – and on this DVD, he is partnered with the Wiener Philharmoniker. The result is spectacular. The orchestra, conducted by Mr. Buchbinder from the piano, is rock solid and is a perfect partner in the kind of music making that Mr. Buchbinder excels. As for the soloist himself, his touch is both tender and purposeful, and his phrasing evocative and contemplative. There is a feeling of truth and correctness to the performance of each piece, a sense – if you will – that this is how things were intended to be conveyed. It is very, very difficult to do anything else but keep your eyes and ears glued to the music making.

The DVD contains an interview between Mr. Buchbinder and Joachim Kaiser that is both interesting and informative. The discussion of changes present in the first publication of one of Beethoven’s scores vs. the contents of a facsimile of the original manuscript is fascinating, and demonstrates the degree of seriousness and preparation that Mr. Buchbinder places on himself as the interpreter of these very special works.

This DVD is incredible. Highly recommended!
