“These live recordings are the culmination of my life with Beethoven.” (Rudolf Buchbinder)
“One of the very great Beethoven interpreters of our time” (Christian Thielemann)
This edition of Rudolf Buchbinder’s recordings of Beethoven’s Complete Piano Concertos document a truly remarkable project. Planned as a series of concerts at Vienna’s Musikverein, it was the first cycle of its kind in the legendary hall’s 150-year history. The pianist was joined for the five concertos by five of the world’s finest conductors and orchestras. Each brought their own distinctive personalities to the collaborations with Buchbinder.
