Ludwig van Beethoven's piano concertos are some of the most popular works in the classical repertoire. Renowned conductor Sir Charles Mackerras leads pianist Artur Pizarro and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra in a truly memorable performance of these great works.
"Whenever Mackerras appears with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra he produces magical alchemy" - The Scotsman. "I think that [Pizarro] would have won Beethoven's hearty applause and approval." - Gramophone.
These works demonstrate Beethoven's move away from the classical style by challenging previous concerto models; delicate and ornamental features are replaced with powerful, rousing, and even heroic, melodies and developments
The magical partnership of Mackerras and the SCO resulted in the addition of Concerto No.5, which was not originally in the recording plan. Concertos 3 and 4 were recorded very quickly - often in one take!
The Scottish Chamber Orchestra and Sir Charles Mackerras have enjoyed a long and fruitful relationship. Their recording 'Mozart Symphonies 38 - 41' was named the classical recording of 2008 by the Sunday Times. It also won a 2009 Midem Award for Symphonic Works and a Choc de l'année Award from Le Monde de la Musique.
