Cliburn Beethoven - Beethoven: Piano Concerto, No. 3 / Brahms: Rhapsodies & Intermezzos

It is a pity that Van Cliburn's various recordings of this music have not been consolidated on a single CD, for they are among his best efforts. There is warmth in his manner, which comes out in supple, graceful phrasing, and remarkable beauty of tone and touch. These are lyrical readings that project a deep sense of nostalgia, even if the melancholy is not as bleak as in Glenn Gould's utterly northern accounts. --Ted Libbey

Perahia Beethoven - Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 5

Perahia Bach - Murray Perahia Plays Bach: Italian Concerto, Bwv 971; Brandenburg Concerto No 5, Bwv 1050; Concerto For Flute, Violin, Harpsichord, Bwv 1044

After playing and conducting Bach's concertos for solo keyboard, Perahia now turns his attention to a pair of similarly scored concertos which involve a couple of excellent colleagues. Except for instrument purists who insist on harpsichords and other period instruments, no Bach lover is likely to have any trouble with the sound of these performances. They are lucidly and expressively played, and every important line is clearly audible. After his rather aggessive approach to the solo concertos, Perahia and his colleagues sound surprisingly sedate in these performances, which are lovely but occasionally seem a bit deficient in excitement and drive. The "Italian Concerto," without the orchestra, is similarly mellow. If it suits your interests, this is a highly pleasing disc,  ...
