This disc may be short and sweet, but Serkin's "Emperor" is poignant and breathtaking. (It was originally part of a three disc set of Beethoven's complete concertos for piano.)

An old favorite that has stood the test of time
(4 out of 5 stars)
"One of my favorite pieces in Beethoven's repetoire is the second movement in his 5th piano concerto, and this particular recording was one of my first purchases and still an all time favorite. Telarc was one of the first to exploit the new recording opportunities of the then new digital format in the 1980s and they succeeded early on in mastering full digital recording for orchestral works. For me, the Telarc recording provides an impressively engrossing three dimensional spatial sense and clarity that has always been missing in earlier analog recordings. Extraneous noise sources such as errant string squeal or paper shuffling no longer compete with tape hiss and, without being invasive or distracting, provide a more captivating snapshot into one of the performances of the now deceased Mr. Serkin."
Just listen to the feelings put into the recording

"just listen to the feelings and emotions pour into this recording by Serkin and Ozawa......tears will flow......(especially the piano keys in the 2nd movement-Adagio un poco mosso) also try to listen/compare to another master piece also by Beethoven, Piano Trio Op 97 Archduke 3rd Movemt Andante Cantabile.........Beethoven penned in his ever so tenderness onto the music sheets for you again and you will feel his touch into your soul"
