Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 5
An excellent recording of a nuanced performance. This is on par with the interpretation by Alfred Brendel in the 1984 recording with James Levine and the Chicago Symphony.
A marvelous recording of a lyrical and insightful performance. I’ve heard many previous incarnations of this recording, but none brought me so clearly into the keyboard and accompaniment. The balance that this brings to the lower strings is crucial, as is the beauty of the string pizzicati. This is amazing.
