Beethoven’s piano concertos impressively reflect the personality and creativity of the revolutionary composer. They are a challenge for every pianist. In this recording of the 2nd and 3rd concertos, the legendary pianist, composer, and teacher Leon Fleischer and his star pupil Margarita Höhenrieder, who has also gained international recognition, show their personal relationship with Beethoven. At two unusual concert locations – the Zollverein World Heritage Site in Germany’s Ruhr area and the famous Max-Littmann-Saal in Bad Kissingen, which is known for its acoustics – the two discerning artists perform the two concertos together with the Kammerphilharmonie Amadé and the Württemberg Chamber Orchestra Heilbronn.
The DVD (ACC20407) will be available in late November/early December (US release in January).
