HD-Vinyls 24/96 (EMI/Angel) Ludwig van Beethoven – The Five Piano Concertos (Barenboim/Klemperer)

front-small-boxsetAlthough my four sets of Beethoven’s Concertos (Pollini, Kempff, Katchen, Arrau)  and Michelangeli’s 1st, 3rd and 5th, are the best I could find, there’s a grandeur in these performances that never crosses the line into clumsy heaviness, and in a strange way force coexists with suppleness. The Fantasia is a piece I fell in love with from the moment I heard it. This late 1960s recording of the Beethoven Piano Concertos is one of the best, and an interesting contrast: the young, brilliant pianist Barenboim with the elderly condcutor Klemperer.
