Another classic concert this week. The Chicago Symphony, led by the late-great Claudio Abbado and featuring the late-great-legendary Rudolf Serkin in an all-Beethoven program this week, recorded 0n February 27 of 1982.
No frills, straightforward music making from these two giants with one of the world’s great orchestras.
Here’s what on the two players this week:
Chicago Symphony – Claudio Abbado
Rudolf Serkin, Piano
February 27, 1982
Part 1 (top Player)
Beethoven: The Creatures Of Prometheus Overture
Piano Concerto Number 4 (w/Serkin)
Part 2 (bottom Player)
Beethoven: Symphony Number 7
I don’t think there’s really anything else you can do but enjoy this one. I’m working on some requests – hopefully there will be some surprises in the coming weeks.
