Overview

Dynamic Finnish pianist and conductor Olli Mustonen continues his acclaimed cycle of the Beethoven piano concertos with the dramatic Third Piano Concerto in C minor and the unique Piano Concerto in D, which Beethoven arranged himself from his Violin Concerto. The C minor Piano Concerto (1803) is considered by many the prototype of the entire genre for the 19th century.

The rarely performed piano arrangement of the Violin Concerto (1806) is one of Beethoven’s most remarkable works (the first movement cadenza includes a dialogue between solo piano and timpani). There have been only a handful of recordings of the Concerto in D, and this one is bound to set a new standard. Mustonen regularly programs the work, contributing to its growing popularity, and it has actually become one of his signature pieces.

The super audio quality of this hybrid recording (SACD surround/SACD stereo/CD stereo) faithfully renders Mustonen’s incomparable mastery of piano sound and technique.
