Product Description

LIVE FROM THE PHILHARMONIE IM GASTEIG, MUNICH, 2011

MITSUKO UCHIDA Piano
LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN
PIANO CONCERTO NO. 3 IN C MINOR
RICHARD STRAUSS
EIN HELDENLEBEN

SYMPHONIEORCHESTER DES BAYERISCHEN RUNDFUNKS
Beethoven wrote his Piano Concerto No. 3 around 1800, at a time in which the ambitious composer had created his rst important works in Vienna, such as the "Pathétique" Sonata and the "Moonlight" Sonata personal works full of power and passion, with which he distanced himself from his mentor and model, Haydn. This performance of Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 3 with the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks under the direction of its principal conductor Mariss Jansons stars the distinguished pianist Mitsuko Uchida, who is known the world over for her outstanding interpretations of the piano works of Schubert, Mozart and Beethoven, as well as of 20th century masters such as Schoenberg, Berg, Webern and Boulez.

Richard Strauss wrote his tone poem for large orchestra Ein Heldenleben (A Hero's Life) in 1898, shortly before he left Munich for the Berlin Court Opera, where he was appointed house conductor. In the imaginary hero whose eventful life is described in the work, the young Strauss apparently envisioned the freelance artist of his time, who was exposed to considerable hostility during the Wilhelminian era, just as Strauss himself in his early Munich period.

Review

The Brahms Symphony in Jansons s hands is certainly an idyll. Darker passages come and go without disturbing the orchestra;s mellifluous warmth or Jansons s exquisite phrasings. --BBC Music Magazine November, 2013

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
This concert, very well recorded by the ever-reliable Brian Large team in 2011, can be considered a considerable success. The actual recording offers high quality visuals with crisp imaging, true colours and sympathetic camera work that provides detailed close-ups as appropriate combined with more distant views. The sound is also of high quality and is offered in DTS 5.0 and stereo options. The lack of a separate sub-woofer channel seems strange given the sonic nature of the Strauss but in reality there is no lack of bass definition or range.

Mitsuko Uchida has an enviable reputation as a Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert pianist so it is no surprise to find that her performance of Beethoven's third piano concerto is deeply rewarding. The largo is delivered with a concentration that leaves the first two concertos far behind and clearly leads forward to the last two concertos. The outer movements are crisply articulated at a comfortable speed that allows all detail to register properly. This is a very good performance and will come as no surprise to those who know her recordings of the Mozart concertos on CD.

Ein Heldenleben is a large work in every sense and one which makes considerable demands on both the conductor and the orchestra. There have been many notable performances on CD from many conductors and orchestras of repute, not least that by Reiner and the Chicago orchestra in the early days of stereo and now available in SACD form. Karajan's recordings were also of considerable stature. However, Jansons too has become associated with fine performances of this work of late and this performances as delivered by the Bavarian orchestra does not disappoint.

This is a fabulous DVD. Mariss Jansons is undoubtably one of the great conductors alive today. As an accompanist with the Beethoven, played so brilliantly by Mitsuko Uchida and for the Richard Strauss, he shows, once again, what a masterful conductor he is and with the orchestral playing of such high quality from the Bavarian RSO, this recorded concert is a must have.
Highly recommended - not to be missed.

If you can only have one Beethoven P.C. # 3 Blu-Ray, THIS is the one to buy! When Mitsuko Uchida, the shy 73 Year old Piano Virtuoso plays the piano, the music flows as smoothly and spontaneously as Water bubbling up from a Mountain Spring. In her Blue Blouse and Silver Pants, she looks like a newly hatched Exotic Butterfly, but you know that in her Heart she is still the 12 Year old girl who had just arrived in Vienna in 1952, when her Father was appointed Japanese Amabassador to Austria. Delightful!

A totally memorable concert with two fine peformances well recorded 20 May 2013

There have been many notable performances on CD from many conductors and orchestras of repute, not least that by Reiner and the Chicago orchestra in the early days of stereo and now available in SACD form. Karajan's recordings were also of considerable stature. However, Jansons too has become associated with fine performances of this work of late and this performances as delivered by the Bavarian orchestra does not disappoint. Sonically it leaves the competition miles behind and the orchestra, with extra brass and woodwind to lessen the load on individual players, rise splendidly to the task. The extended solo violin part as played by the leader of the orchestra, Anton Barachovsky, deserves a very special mention as being of a particularly sensitive and elevated quality. Not surprisingly. he is singled out for particular applause by the conductor and the packed and enthusiastic audience at the end.

Jansons' interpretation follows fairly traditional lines with tempi chosen and detail brought out in line with any of the most satisfying performances on CD. It is quite clear that this is an interpretation that is well-known by the orchestra who have no difficulty in understanding and delivering his interpretive vision. Once again, this is a deeply satisfying performance made especially enjoyable by the excellence of the recording.

I would therefore suggest that this disc is likely to be a front runner among audio-video choices for a considerable amount of time to come. It is of a quality that may even encourage some long-term collectors to replace their treasured CDs with this new one which can also be enjoyed purely as sound of course. New collectors may wish to consider this as a potential 'only' version and, as such, they will not be disappointed.

Three works 3 Oct. 2013
By James Clow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Mitsuko Uchida's performances (Beethoven PC 3 and an encore performance of the Sarabande from Bach French Suite in G) are by far the stars of this recording. Her clarity and careful phrasing are amazing. That is not to say that the performance of Strauss' Ein Heldenleben is substandard. Jansons' accompanying of Uchida is expert. His Ein Heldenleben is a bit underplayed but the broad expanses he obtains from the Bavarian orchestra makes up for it. The video and sound are high quality throughout with intelligent video direction.
