Olli Mustonen crowns his acclaimed cycle of complete Beethoven concertos with recordings of the famous Fourth and Fifth Piano Concertos.

Olli Mustonen performs these virtuoso works simultaneously as pianist and conductor – a demanding practice in line with Beethoven’s intentions, which can however be only seldom experienced in today’s concert life or on disc.

Mustonen develops his visionary approach to these works together with the renowned chamber orchestra Tapiola Sinfonietta; together they have toured Europe with this programme to much acclaim.

The SACD quality faithfully renders Mustonen’s incomparable mastery of piano sound and technique.

****

“...Olli Mustonen displays consummate skill in these renderings of the 4th and 5th Concertos – especially impressive...Mustonen brings great energy to his performances, particularly the more rumbustious opening movement of the lengthy 5th, whose colossal aspect clearly offers no obstacles to his abilities.”
