The Swedish label BIS Records has released the Minnesota Orchestra's recording of Beethoven's intensely dramatic Third Piano Concerto, paired with Mozart’s dark, passionate and poetic Piano Concerto No. 24—a work greatly admired by Beethoven. Music Director Osmo Vänskä conducts while acclaimed Russian soloist Yevgeny Sudbin is featured at the keyboard.
Vänskä, Sudbin and the Orchestra recorded the concertos at Minneapolis’ Orchestra Hall in sessions during June 2011 and May/June 2012. The BIS team, led by producer Robert Suff, recorded the album as a Super Audio CD (SACD), using surround sound recording technology to reproduce the sound of the concert hall as faithfully as possible. BIS Hybrid SACDs are playable on all standard CD players.
