Piano Concerto No.s 2 & 4 - Beethoven, 1977-HMV-collectable, Gilels - SXLP 30515

£7.99

Product description

(featuring the legendary soloist Emil Gilels, backed by The Cleveland Orchestra conducted by the equally legendary George Szell)

The five piano concertos by Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) are among the most important of their kind by any composer. The Concerto in B flat, although numbered No.2, was in fact written before the work known as No.1 ; a brilliant piece that is often termed "somewhat-Mozartian in style", it was composed in 1795 but was revised by Beethoven before its publication.
Side One : Piano Concerto No.2 in B flat Op.19, by Beethoven :-
1) I Allegro con brio 2) II Adagio 3) III Rondo (Molto allegro).

The Fourth Concerto is almost unique amongst Piano Concertos up to that time, inasmuch as the piano introduces the whole work, rather than waiting until the end of the orchestral tutti (as in the concertos by Mozart and others). The slow movement, a dialogue between piano and orchestra, is unique in the entire concerto repertoire ...
Side Two : Piano Concerto No.4 in G Op.58, by Beethoven :-
1) I Allegro moderato 2) i) II Andante con moto ii) III Rondo (Vivace).

(further, English-language notes by R Kinloch Anderson, on Reverse Sleeve (sample Photo Four))

Records graded visually to RRPG grades (record/sleeve) VG+/EX-.
