    Album information

    Renowned conductor Sir Charles Mackerras leads pianist Artur Pizarro and the SCO in a truly memorable performance of these great works.  

    The magical partnership of Charles 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.

    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.
