Alicia de Larrocha, Olli Mustonen (pianos) / Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra / Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie

[ Decca ABC Australian Eloquence / CD ]

Release Date: Friday 27 January 2006

Spanish pianist Alicia de Larrocha's first recording of Beethoven's Emperor is a grand and thrilling affair and this recording here receives its first release on CD.

The pairing is Beethoven's own arrangement of his Violin Concerto, for piano and orchestra and it is played with tremendous élan and style by Olli Mustonen. Note the first movement cadenza - scored for piano and timpani - that Beethoven especially composed for this arrangement!

Tracks:

Piano Concerto No. 5 in E flat major, Op. 73 'Emperor'
Concerto in D major for Piano & Orchestra (Arranged by the composer from the Violin Concerto, Op. 61)
