Description: Following the initiative of the Stuttgart piano teacher and publisher Prof. Dr. Sigmund Lebert, several arrangements of Beethoven’s piano concertos of emerged in 1881 “... for study and concert-hall” and for which he was able to get famous composers, such as Franz Liszt or Vincenz Lachner. We owe to the latter the transcription of the second concerto, which gets a fascinating, rarely heard chamber music sound through careful allocation of the parts and refined orchestration and which appears on CD for the first time with this recording. Patricia Hase (piano), Ensemble Galina; Peter Liepold.
