“If I had to take one Beethoven concerto cycle to a desert island,” wrote one critic of Rudolf Buchbinder’s recordings of Beethoven’s piano concertos, “it might just be this.” In this second instalment of his Birmingham Beethoven cycle, conductor/pianist Rudolf Buchbinder tackles the mighty “Emperor” concerto itself: music without limits, performed with supreme understanding by a living legend amongst pianists.
