Description

Resound Beethoven on CD

With the present release, the Orchester Wiener Akademie and it's conductor Martin Haselbock continue the Resound Beethoven series, performed on period instruments and scrupulously respecting the orchestral layout of 200 years ago. Volume 6 is devoted to the Eighth Symphony, premiered in 1814, and the Piano Concerto in D major op.61a, first performed in 1808. Beethoven made this piano arrangement of his Violin Concerto at the request of fellow composer and music publisher Muzio Clementi, who wished to publish it in London. The recording featured here took place in the Austrian Academy of Sciences (Old University) in Vienna, where many important works by Beethoven received their first performance. The Austrian pianist Gottlieb Wallisch, well known for his authentic interpretations of Beethoven's music, is the soloist in this rarely performed concerto.
