Beethoven’s concertos enjoy the spotlight in this podcast from Raymond Bisha. It serves as a companion resource to the latest digital album in our series marking the 250th anniversary of the composer’s birth. The technical and musical demands Beethoven makes of his concerto soloists shine centre-stage in this compilation of wonderful performances of movements from his five piano concertos, his violin concerto, and the triple concerto for violin, cello and piano. The line-up of soloists is world-class; and there’s the bonus of several other Beethoven works written in concertante form that are generally less well-known.
