The Beethoven Symphony cycle by the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich conducted by David Zinman achieved somewhat of a cult status, first released on a budget label, later in full glory issued on Sony Classical. The same characteristics that distinguished the symphony cycle apply for this set of the complete piano concertos: warmth, clarity, drive and total commitment. Soloist is world famous pianist Yefim Bronfman, a virtuoso who is able to bring out the power and delicacies of these wonderful masterworks by Beethoven, which count among the most frequently performed works of the whole classical repertoire. As generous bonus works feature the Choral Fantasy and the Overture Meeresstille und glückliche Fahrt.

Despite his nickname, Yefim Bronfman knows here to differentiate the minutest nuances, enjoys soaring in median movements of the concertos, lets his fabulous finger work develop properly in the virtuosic passages but contrasts his bravura with lyrical oasis – see for instance the dream-like Adagio un poco mosso from “Emperor” concerto or the tragic utterance Andante con moto (from the Fourth concerto. . A major role in showcasing the soloist plays the wonderful Tonhalle Zurich orchestra under his former chief conductor David Zinman. I congratulate the artists also for including Choral fantasy n their Beethoven concertante integral committed to disc. It is a work of a particular charm, a quintessential precursor of the IXth symphony to come in Titan’s output...
On the series "Alaska, the Last Frontier", one of the Kilchers remarks that money can't buy happiness, but it can buy goats. Though not a goat, this set is a fine example of happiness money can buy.
These are breezy (but not weightless) Classical performances, as if Mozart were at the keyboard. To extend the animal metaphor, they evoke 'possum grins.
The Choral Fantasia, which often comes off as a tediously repetitive bore, a clumsy, incompetent anticipation of 9:4, is here a brilliant, engaging showpiece.
Stop what you're doing, and buy a copy. You will be very happy for a few hours each time you play it.
