Great Pianists: Artur Schnabel [1882 - 1951] plays Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 5 and Cello Sonata No. 2. Naxos Historical 8.110640.
Details: Piano Concerto No. 5 in E flat major, Op. 73 "Emperor", was recorded on 24th March 1932 at EMI's Abbey Road Studio No.1 in London. The orchestra was, as with Piano Concerto No. 1, the London Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Malcolm Sargent. - Cello Sonata No. 2 in G minor, Op. 5 No. 2, was recorded on 6th and 16th December 1934 at EMI's Abbey Road Studio No. 3 in London. The cellist was Gregor Piatigorsky [1903 - 1976].
The audio restoration engineer for this release was Mark Obert-Thorn. The CD was issued to commemorate the centenary of Artur Schnabel's birth. The total playing time is 60'07".

Artur Schnabel was one of the 20th century's greatest Beethoven interpreters, and, fortunately for those of us who were born too late to hear him live, HMV persuaded him to record the body of Beethoven's piano music, now restored and released on no less than 14 CDs by Naxos. Although the 1932 sound of Piano Concerto No. 5 is perhaps not quite so good as that of the later recordings with the London Philharmonic, this edition, carefully restored by Mark Obert-Thorn, is well able to give an impression of Schnabel's art and also of that of Malcolm Sargent: there is here not only some absolutely delightful piano playing but also a clarity in the dialoguing between soloist and orchestra, the likes of which I have seldom heard. Despite the mono sound with its inevitable "hiss", there are details to be heard here which made me forget, at least for a while, the fact that this recording is, in the mean time, 75 years old.
