Ludwig van Beethoven: Piano Concertos 1–5 3 CD (Hybrid-SACD)

Available versions

There is hardly a better way to approach Ludwig van Beethoven than through his piano concertos. Beethoven’s own instrument was the piano, and in his improvisations – which made him the darling of the Viennese salons – he merged virtuosity and unbridled expression. The piano concertos give a clear idea of these performances. At the same time, they are prime examples of Beethoven’s ability to create large orchestral works with seemingly endless arcs of tension.

The edition is now being released in a lower-priced new edition on 3 CDs/SACDs which can be played on any CD or SACD player. The edition includes a high quality slipcase and a comprehensive booklet. The new release enables playback with either the best CD sound or – when used as SACD – in high-resolution audio quality and in surround sound.
