On the occasion of Paul Badura-Skoda’s 80th birthday, GENUIN is presenting gifts: the issue of Beethoven’s Piano Concertos recorded by the great Austrian pianist. The Leipzig label with this CD box of course bows before Badura-Skoda, who now will be receiving his wonderful recordings served up clean, polished and carefully processed in a jewel case. And then, GENUIN is presenting itself with a gift as well: where else today can one find such precious items as these already 50-year-old and yet completely youthful sound documents with Badura-Skoda, the Orchestra of the Vienna State Opera and Hermann Scherchen? Finally, all music lovers, for whom this long-buried treasure is again accessible, can especially feel that someone was thinking of them: great recordings from a past era, a monument and a stroke of luck. Simply give a gift or receive one. And then listen.

“Furor and finesse, drive and lyricism, intellect and emotion are finely balanced in a manner that has become almost impossible at the hectic pace of today’s nearly rehearsal-free guest appearances. Monumental yet without pounding - instead performed with an all-too-human Viennese twinkle of the eye. This Beethoven has lasting value.” Spiegel.Online

"Diapason d'Or" for the Beethoven piano concerts with Paul Badura-Skoda. Please read about it Etienne Moreau
