Eduard van Beinum & Concertgebouw Orchestra = BEETHOVEN: Piano Concerto No. 5 in E-flat Major, OP. 73 “Emperor”; SCHUMANN: Piano Concerto in A Minor, Op. 54 – Myra Hess, piano/Concertgebouw Orchestra of Amsterdam/Eduard van Beinum – Tahra

Beinum invests the tuttis with considerable dramatic power, all the while meticulously and faithfully supporting Hess with the interior nuance that often illuminates the structure of the work.
