BEETHOVEN: Piano Concerto No. 5
BRUCKNER: Symphony No. 7
BEETHOVEN: Symphony No. 8, iii. Tempo di Menuetto –Minnesota Orchestra, Osmo Vanska, conductor (BIS 1516) Album: Beethoven Symphonies 3 & 8 (1:52:35-1:57:24)
In June 2010, the Minnesota Orchestra wrapped up their season with Beethoven's most powerful piano concerto. Joining the Orchestra is the astonishing Yevgeny Sudbin, who at 29 has already been hailed by International Record Review as "one of the most important pianistic talents of our time." He's a tough act to follow, but Anton Bruckner's soaring Symphony No. 7 will deliver, sweeping you up into the spring sky and straight into summer.
