About

Between 1971 and 1972 two remarkable artists at the peak of their powers joined forces with Chicago Symphony Orchestra to record one of the greatest achievements in the history of music. The result was one of the finest cycles of Beethoven’s immortal Piano Concertos ever recorded. Four decades on, Decca proudly presents this 1973 Grammy Award Winning set at stunning 24-bit sound, mastered from original analogue tapes, with hardback packaging, and considered editorial. This new Blu-ray disc format, in particular, affords an unprecedented opportunity to hear the recordings in Hi-Resolution while offering pride of ownership for a deluxe physical product.

“The complete Ashkenazy/Solti set of Beethoven concertos in one word is superb. The range of Ashkenazy’s tone is tremendous… Sir Georg Solti’s accompaniment is right on the spot and his Chicago orchestra is recorded with a fine depth of sound” – Gramophone
