About

Lars Vogt continues his cycle of Beethoven’s Piano Concertos with the Royal Northern Sinfonia. On this second volume, the recording also includes Beethoven’s Triple Concerto where Lars Vogt is joined together with his longtime artistic partners Christian Tetzlaff and Tanja Tetzlaff. Vogt’s recordings of chamber music with the trio have gathered astonishing reviews and recording awards, including a Grammy nomination for the recording of Brahms Piano Trios (ODE12712D).

Beethoven’s Triple Concerto for Piano, Violin and Cello in C major, op.56, is a work radiant with joy, described by many as a concerto for piano trio and orchestra. The work, completed in 1803, has standed unrivalled in its genre. Beethoven’s Piano Concerto no.3 in C minor, op.37, is a slightly earlier work and it was premiered together with his Symphony no.2 in a concert in 1804. It has been noted that the theme in the first movement of the concerto is possibly a quotation from Mozart’s Piano Concerto no.24 written in the same key, and the both works do resemble each other in formal, rhythmic, and thematic aspects. C minor is also a key in which Beethoven wrote many of his most important works, including the Fifth Symphony, the Pathétique Sonata and the Piano Sonata, op.111.

Lars Vogt was appointed the first ever ‘Pianist in Residence’ by the Berlin Philharmonic in 2003/04 and enjoys a high profile as a soloist and chamber musician. His debut solo recording on Ondine with Bach’s Goldberg Variations (ODE1272) was released in August 2015 and has been a major critical success. The album’s tracks have also been streamed online over 6 million times. Lars Vogt started his tenure as Music Director of the Royal Northern Sinfonia in September 2015. In June 2017 Lars Vogt was nominated for Gramophone’s Artist of the Year 2017 Award.
