CD Reviews

The CD version is a better value; good pianist, bad orchestr

(3 out of 5 stars)

"The included DVD does *NOT* contain a complete concert performance of either concerto. It's just some filler materials usually seen in the "bonus features" section of DVD movies. The CD version of these two concertos is a much better value. (Link: Beethoven: Piano Concertos Nos. 1 & 4) You can find more reviews there, too.

In a nutshell, while the Chinese pianist Lang Lang does an admirable job here interpreting two of Beethoven's piano concertos, the accompanying orchestra is just terrible. It sounds underpaid and under-rehearsed, and just unresponsive and lethargic. Pity."
