Beethoven: Overture 'The Consecration Of The House'
The overture "The Consecration of the House" is followed by the 4th Piano Concerto with a once again fantastic Lauma Skride, who also contributes to the listening pleasure with the rarely heard Variations in C minor WoO 80.
As a bonus, the second CD contains an intellectual and linguistic highlight: Peter Gülke and Alfred Brendel discuss Schubert, Beethoven and the art of interpretation.
On the encore CD, Gülke reads (in German) from the volume of conversations he published together with Brendel at Bärenreiter and Metzler.
Numerous exquisite sound samples illustrate the thoughts of the two intellectual giants; two enigmatically surreal poems by Brendel, recited by the master himself, round off the programme of this edition, which is exceptional in every respect.
Recorded in MDG's pioneering 2+2+2 surround sound onto SACD, this is a thrilling package.
