A super-classic recording from 1969 with four of the biggest names in classical music at the time, now in super-fidelity (for a price).
BEETHOVEN: Concerto for Violin, Cello, and Piano in C Major, “Triple”; Trio in E-flat Major, Op. 1 No. 1 – Claremont Trio/ SF Ballet Orch./ Martin West – Bridge
A well-chosen program performed and recorded with aplomb.
BEETHOVEN: Triple Concerto in C Major, Op. 56; Incidental Music to Goethe’s Egmont, Op. 84 – Trio Wanderer/ Anja Harteros, sop./ Konrad Beikircher, narr./ Guerzenicher-Orch. Koelner Philharmoniker/ James Conlon – Harmonia mundi
Harmonia mundi revives two sterling Beethoven renditions, each a testament to conductor Conlon’s range and sensitivity, supported by the peerless Trio Wanderer.
BEETHOVEN: Triple Concerto; BRAHMS: Violin Concerto; Double Concerto – David Oistrakh, violin/ Mstislav Rostropovich, cello/ Sviatoslav Richter, piano/Berlin Philharmonic/ Herbert von Karajan (BEETHOVEN)/Cleveland Orch./ George Szell (BRAHMS) – EMI Classics (2 discs)
The first of our reviews of the initial batch of EMI Classics Signature SACD Collection.
It’s a pleasant surprise to find that the swinging-Bach jazz-style arrangements of the Jacques Loussier Trio fit so well with these hoary two and three-piano concertos.
