1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By J Scott Morrison HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on 19 Dec 2012
Format: Audio CD
All five Beethoven concertos have been recorded hundreds of times since the beginning of recorded music. Here we have fine performances by Ingrid Jacoby and the Sinfonia Varsovia conducted by Jacek Kaspsyzk. Jacoby is a conmplete pianist with virtuosity to spare and musical instincts. We are told on her website that this is the first in series of recordings that will comprise all of the Beethoven concertos.

The question, of course, is whether Jacoby brings anything particularly new and striking to her performances, and the answer is 'no.' These are entirely conventional, albeit beautiful, performances by both the pianist and the fine orchestra (whose recordings we are increasingly hearing these days, particularly those conducted by another pianist cum conductor, Ian Hobson, e.g. Don Gillis: Symphonies 1, 2 & 5 1/2).

I must add that I have reviewed one previous Jacoby recording and panned it. But this was not because of her playing, but rather because of the playing of the orchestra involved Concerto in F / Symphony No 2 / The Age of Anxiety.
