Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Vienna Symphony is not a great orchestra but Giulini makes them give of their best. The solo contributions from the wind may not be distinguished, and in chorus the wind achieve no better than a rustic blend at times, but Giulini insists on proper phrasing and punctuation and that is much; and in the first tutti he lays down a frame for a performance of the first movement that Michelangeli can fill out with relish.

-- Gramophone [2/1988]
reviewing the 3rd Concerto, previously reissued as DG 423230

-------

Some may find the Michelangeli/Giulini Beethoven First Concerto overly studied and self-concious in its sobriety of spirit. I, however, always have been drawn to both conductor
Read more and pianist's scrupulous concentration and broad elegance.
