Ludwig van Beethoven

Piano Concerto No. 1; Symphonies Nos. 2 & 3

Martha Argerich, Lucerne Festival Orchestra, Herbert Blomstedt


"In August 2020, Herbert Blomstedt made his debut with the Lucerne Festival Orchestra. You could hardly tell that the maestro had celebrated his 93rd birthday only a month prior for he continuously exudes vitality, awareness, and curiosity. 'I’m in love with music,' says Blomstedt, who views his profession as a kind of joie de vivre. Together with the Lucerne Festival Orchestra and Martha Argerich he revealed just what this joy sounds like with Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1 – the work that marked Argerich’s stage debut in 1949 - and Symphonies Nos. 2 and 3, the famous Eroica. Recorded live at the Concert Hall of KKL Luzern, August 2020. Directed by Ute Feudel. Produced by Paul Smaczny."
