About

Originally released in 1995, these recordings of Beethoven’s five Piano Concertos by the renowned British pianist Michael Roll and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Howard Shelley were highly praised by critics at the time. The 3CD set also includes an outstanding performance of Triple Concerto, in which Michael Roll is joined by two leading soloists, violinist Jean-Jacques Kantorow and cellist Raphael Wallfisch.

Pianist Michael Roll came to prominence when he won the inaugural Leeds International Piano Competition in 1963 at the age of 17. Since this success, his artistry and deepening maturity has brought continued and glowing praise from public and critics alike all over the world. He has given recital and concerto appearances throughout Europe in such cities as Berlin, Munich, Hamburg and London.

These recordings of the Beethoven Piano Concertos with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Howard Shelley received rave reviews when first released in 1995, and at the time were chosen as an ‘Editor’s Choice’ in Gramophone magazine.
