    Inspired Collaboration on Smaller Scale Beethoven

    When one thinks of the pianistic output of Beethoven, one comes up with the Emperor Concerto or the Appassionata sonata. In both cases, modern sensibilities have given these works those popular nicknames and perhaps have unfairly relegated these works to popular music status.
    On the contrary, the piano concertos are not popular works, nor should be. David Zinman and the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra have scaled down the heroic scope and textured them in a more chamber-like setting. Indeed, as this listener has become accustomed to the lighter phrasing by Bronfman, Beethoven's youthful inventiveness becomes more apparent. Listen to this recording together with its companion disc of Concertos 3 and 4. As usual, this superlative achievement demonstrates Arte Nova's fine engineering standards, and with such an economically priced disc, the sound is excellent.
    For those seeking to sample the concerti as a boxed set, Melvyn Tan and Roger Norrington have recorded all five concertos together with the Choral Fantasy on fortepiano. This makes an interesting contrast to the Bronfman/Zinman recordings, if heard separately.
