Beethoven: Piano Concertos 1 And 2
Format: COMPACT DISC
Hahn, Patrick H.; Kammerakademie Potsdam; Cavé, Olivier
A subtle performer of the Baroque and Classical piano repertory (Scarlatti, Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven all feature in his discography on Aeon or Alpha), Olivier Cavé here offers us for the first time his interpretation of Beethoven’s first two concertos, written between the ages of twenty-five and thirty. There was a genuine alchemy in the Mozart concertos that he recorded in 2016, and this new project is marked by the same youthful vitality in two works composed by a Beethoven still steeped in the influence of Mozart. His energy gets an additional boost from the collaboration with the Kammerakademie Potsdam, an orchestra highly experienced in the Beethoven repertory, and the young conductor Patrick Hahn, one of the most promising members of the new generation, who celebrates his twenty-fifth birthday in 2020.
