WOOOW! The last album to Sudbin/Vänskä Beethoven Piano Concertos! Looks great!

hmmmm...why they did they change the orchestra?

Comment by Luukas - February 5, 2017 (3 of 6)

[Current93] I just wondered the same thing. There is already this one: Beethoven: Piano Concertos 1 & 2 - Mustonen

I believe the change of venue has to do with the fact that the concerts with the Minnesota Orchestra that were to have preceded the recordings were cancelled during the lockout. I think the Brautigam series also on BIS is outstanding but presents the pieces rather in the form of large scale chamber music so I'm glad to see that Sudbin's set has been completed. Mustonen is enjoyable but quite idiosyncratic.

Personaly, I nevermind Tapiola Sinfonietta, they are terrific in the BIS Liszt concertos and Beethoven/Mustonen cycle as well, but orchestra replacement gives a whole cycle a touch of inconsistency.

By co-incidence we were listening to the Ondine disc on Sunday evening and thought the playing to be a little ragged and not all that inspiring. Mustonen conducts the ensemble from his seat at the piano which in my experience is not always a success having seen one or two conductor's do this at Bournemouth - notably Litton. It seems to me to be a better option for the soloist to focus on the expression of the keyboard part and leave the subtleties of accompaniment to a conductor.
