LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN (1770-1827): Piano Concerto in E Flat, WoO 4 (reconstr. Ronald Brautigam), Rondo in B Flat, WoO 6, Piano Concerto No. 2 in B Flat, Op. 19.
Catalogue Number: 06K046
Description: Unlike the 1930s Hess version, Brautigam tries to keep the orchestra (and its mere pairs of flutes and horns) playing within the range and limitations of period instruments (although this recording uses a modern orchestra). Necessarily, his completions of missing melodic material differs somewhat as well. Ronald Brautigam (piano), Norrköping Symphony Orchestra; Andrew Parrott. SACD hybrid.
