Alas, my copy was stolen a few years later and I was forced to replace it with a Teldec recording of Schiff and Haitnik. Itself a marvel of performance and recording quality. However, there was always something missing and I couldn't figure out what it was. I came across another copy of Lubin's recording and understood immediately that I needed to have it.
There is a sense of scale and history on this recording. An authenticity. A depth. A feeling of effortless perfection all wrapped in a recording of crystal clarity.
If you prefer the sound of a modern concert piano 'hammering' out Beethoven, this isn't the disc for you. If you want to listen to Beethoven like he intended, this is perfection.

I recall there was a reviewer who thought Hogwood took the Fifth concerto too fast but I think the performance speaks otherwise. As notes here, the only drawback is that the Fifth concerto sits alone on the third disc. It would have been better had the Choral Fantasy been included or some other work that would that would better fill out the disc. However, the lack of additional music would never change my mind about buying this set. Strongly recommended.
