Notes and Editorial Reviews

Here three Titian's- Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli, Carlo Maria Giulini, and the Vienna Symphony Orchestra unite in one of the greatest performances of Beethoven's Emperor Concerto available. Michelangeli's unparalleled precision aided by Giulini and the Vienna forces lush support particularly in the outer movements is particularly astounding. Deutsche Grammophon's sound slightly favors the soloist though otherwise fully captures this extraordinary event famously.
