Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 2/Mozart: Divertimento in D/Grieg: Holberg Suite (CD)
Four decades of friendship and musical partnership brings these two titans of classical music together again, with the eagerly anticipated follow-up to their now-legendary recording of the first concerto.
Coupled with Ozawa’s first-ever recording of Grieg’s Holberg Suite and a bonus track from Mozart’s Divertimento K.136.
“ One of the most joyous recordings of Beethoven’s First Piano Concerto to have come out for years. Ozawa may be entering a glorious Indian Summer of creativity ” - Gramophone
“ Argerich and Ozawa spark off each other and energy bubbles in the orchestra ” - BBC Music Magazine
