The Swedish label BIS Records has released the Minnesota Orchestra's recording of Beethoven's final two piano concertos, the Fourth and Fifth (Emperor), conducted by Music Director Osmo Vänskä and featuring Russian soloist Yevgeny Sudbin at the keyboard.

Vänskä, Sudbin and the Orchestra recorded the concertos at Minneapolis' Orchestra Hall in sessions during January 2009 and June 2010.

BIS Hybrid SACDs are playable on all standard CD players.
