4.0 out of 5 stars Technical perfection 6 Aug 2011
Format:Audio CD
Brilliant recording! The no 1 is brilliant and sparkling. The no 4 has subtle shifts like sun through a tree on a windy summer's day.
Lang is one of the most brilliant technical pianists I have ever heard. But I can't hear any real depth.
Eschenbach gives the perfect framework. I can't wish for anything more from that. Now I want to find more of his recordings!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lang Lang's musical anchorage. 30 July 2010
By Abert
Format:Audio CD
I could not agree more with Christoph Eschenbach's observation about Lang Lang - of the multi-repertoire that young Lang has savoured since his child prodigy days, he requires a specialty composer so as to be able to dwell deeper into the musical language, and Beethoven is probably the best choice for him.
I have listened and greatly admired the Harnoncourt Beethoven piano concerti (Harnoncourt being one of my favorite contemproary conductors since the 1970's). The orchestration in that recording was simply superb, and the character, style and soul of Harnoncourt in Beethoven's works hard to beat.
Eschenbach's conducting here is also good, but to my personal view, not as good as Harnoncourt's. This may be subjective, but I do find the `Beethoven style' some what lacking here, especially the tutti parts of these two works.
As for Lang Lang in the solo parts, this not to say that Lang's playing is perfect, nor the best, but it is not one jot `bad' as many would claim. Why compare him with Argerich? Argerich had declined Harnoncourt's invitation to record for HIM then, because she does not play the entire set of Beethoven Concerti, and would not want to learn those that she did not know.
So much for the mature pianist. The two concerti chosen here could indeed still be improved upon, though one must bear in mind that the 4th is considered to be the most introverted piano concertos of Beethoven, and Lang Lang had tuned down much of his highly inflammatory style.
The 3rd movement of the 1st concerto really should be more fiery, but Lang Lang some how missed the fireworks in this movement.
Lang Lang, so far, has NOT established himself as a virtuoso of any specialty, much unlike his compatriot Yundi Li. Well, IMHV this is something that he should do right now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lang Lang Beethoven 2 May 2012
By Isobel
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Lang Lang's performance doesn't fail to thrill. This recording captures the essence of his perfect rendition by the most talented of pianists. His expression is so varied from subtle to emphatic and simply makes one want to hear more.
