Description
French pianist Robert Casadesus was famed as a Mozart interpreter, and in the Concerto no. 23 he demonstrates why, with his style and finesse. Casadesus's superb interpretation of Beethoven's Concerto no. 5 ("Emperor") was made in 1965 under Christoph von Dohnányi, while Hermann Scherchen led the orchestra for the pianist's scintillating version of Ravel's Concerto for the Left Hand.

"A wonderfully complete musician, displaying superb intuition, taste, and splendid technique, all qualities evinced in abundance…. The Beethoven here is a delightful surprise…. It is the vivaciousness of the interpretation that immediately compels, as well as the lack of even a trace of sentimentality in the slow movement. For the connoisseur, there is the delight of [Casadesus's] colorful, pellucid tone and his buoyant pulse…. A fine tribute to a wonderful, perhaps somewhat neglected pianist that I expect to return to often."—Fanfare
