Amazing ABM! 24 Oct 2012
By K. Xian - Published on Amazon.com
I once had this misconception that ABM was merely technically superb but with a distant and emotionless heart. I first came to suspecting this conviction was after I had listened to Pollini's playing Beethoven piano sonata Hammerklavier. For the first time I started to like this clean style and decided to give ABM a try. So this CD was the first ABM I have ever bought. And what a CD it is!!

Neither ABM nor Celibidache was an easy person to deal with in their career life. But when they did collaborate, the result was truly amazing. This CD was issued mainly to the Japanese market, by an unknown German company Weitbuch, under the permission from Celibidache's son. The Beethoven's 5th piano concerto was performed in Helsinki in 1969, while the Schumann was in Stockholm 1967. Amazingly, the sound of the Emperor was very good, even with all the coughing and noises from the audience, one won't be distracted due to the crystal clear sound ABM produced. Especially the Adagio was the best I have ever heard, having heard many recordings from good old days and from the present, including ABM playing this concerto on DG. (The transition from the 2nd movement to the third, however, was a bit strange; I am not quite if the orchestra made a mistake or not).

The Schumann piano concerto, in comparison, suffer from recording quality. But the music is nonetheless unforgettable.

Some years ago Memories put together a 2 CD album with two other concertos, Ravel and Rachmaninoff 4. But that album is now very difficult to find. So if you can not get that one, do get this one. And you will not regret. This CD can only be bought from Amazon Japan sent by DHL.
