'...outstanding performances, always satisfying and frequently inspiring.' Sunday Herald

IRR Outstanding: '...nearly two hours of unalloyed delight.' International Record Review

'...great expressiveness in its dynamics makes the piece feel like a conversation between instruments.' What Hi-Fi?

 

Upon its release this recording was selected by Classic FM as its ‘Disc of the Week', entered the UK Classical Chart and received several five star reviews.

The magical partnership of Mackerras and the SCO resulted in the addition of Concerto No. 5, which was not originally in the recording plan. Concertos 3 and 4 were recorded very quickly - often in one take! Beethoven's final three piano concertos demonstrate the composer's move away from the classical style by challenging previous concerto models; delicate and ornamental features are replaced with powerful, rousing, and even heroic, melodies and developments.
