Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Perahia's account of the Emperor, strong and thoughtful yet with characteristic touches of poetry, rounds off an outstanding cycle of Beethoven concertos. The approach is spacious, and with Bernard Haitink and the Concertgebouw Orchestra firm, responsive partners, each movement immediately takes flight." - Penguin Guide to Compact Discs & DVDs - 2005/06 Edition "Perahia's account of the Emperor, strong and thoughtful yet with characteristic touches of poetry, rounds off an outstanding cycle of Beethoven concertos.

 Pure Beethoven January 11, 2013 By Leonard B. (Sarasota, FL) See All My Reviews "As I listen now to Perahia's interpretation of the "Emperor" concerto, I feel as if the composer's heart and soul are filling up in Perahia's fingers as they play this most loving piano concerto in the repertoire."
