About

This CD features two of Beethoven’s most popular and lyrical concertos, recorded in stereo by Columbia in 1959 and 1960.

Good copies of Leonid Kogan LPs are like gold dust and consequently have become highly cherished by collectors; first edition pressings in excellent condition of this recording of Beethoven’s Violin Concerto generally fetch prices well in excess of £2500.

By this stage of his career Hans Richter-Haaser was perceived to be one of the finest pianists in this repertoire and his grand style of playing with careful observance of dynamics is well suited to the warmth of the Abbey Road acoustic.
