Description: This would have been Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 6. It dates from 1815 and contains 182 bars of pure Beethoven (six and a half minutes). The remaining nine minutes were reconstructed by English scholar Nicholas Cook in 1987, who perfectly characterizes the music as "a snapshot of what Beethoven had in mind before he decided it was not to be his Sixth Piano Concerto". Maurizio Paciariello (piano), Sassari Symphony Orchestra; Roberto Diem Tigani.
