John Suchet’s Album of the Week
‘Just for the Second Beethoven concert this album is worth it. A little miracle.’
'With certainly exciting performances by the soloists – we just admire the rich playing by Pires and the inspired ‘discussion’ by Vogt, Nikolitch and Hugh.'
London Symphony Orchestra
LSO Live celebrates the 90th birthday of one of the conducting world’s greats, Bernard Haitink.
Few artists have a deeper understanding of the music of Beethoven than the celebrated Dutch conductor, who is known for his mastery of the great symphonic repertoire. This album focuses on Haitink's interpretations of Beethoven's concerto writing, coupling a new recording of Piano Concerto No 2 by Maria João Pires with a virtuosic performance of the Triple Concerto by Lars Vogt, Gordan Nikolitch and Tim Hugh, which was originally made alongside Haitink's now iconic cycle of the composer's complete symphonies.
