Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 3; Violin Concerto (Version for Piano)

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Leonard
Lithe but still muscular, Olli Mustonen and the Tapiola Sinfonietta's performances of Beethoven's "Third Piano Concerto" and Beethoven's arrangement for piano of his "Violin Concerto" are thoroughly musical and wholly delightful. Mustonen has a strong technique but a subtle delivery that grants Beethoven's "C minor Concerto" both power and nuance and his "D major Concerto" both vigor and vivacity.
