Piano Concerto No. 4 In G, Op. 58. 2-. Conductor – Sir Colin Davis. Orchestra – Staatskapelle Dresden. Piano – Claudio Arrau. Recorded: Dresden, 11/1984 (4, 5); 2/1987 (1, 3); 10/1987 (2) Co-production with VEB Deutsche Schallplatten, Berlin/DDR. Total playing-time . ’08.

Claudio Arrau recorded these Beethoven concerti while in his early 80's. Having played these pieces all his life, his readings here are something of a backward, departing glance after much time spent in their company. This is most obvious in the 4th concerto. Arrau and Davis give one of the most sincerely noble and grand renditions of a work that has become overly familiar and possibly overplayed. For example, the 1st movement opening cadenza is often played with very little imagination and/or no color by younger players these days. In contrast, Arrau plays it with a disarming rhythmic spontaneity and actually gives it some shape. The big moments are as big as the piano can possibly give, Arrau squeezing out the very last milligram of sound possible from the instrument, with Davis and company matching him blow for blow.

The Piano Concerto No. 5 in E♭ major, Op. 73, by Ludwig van Beethoven, popularly known as the Emperor Concerto, was his last completed piano concerto. It was written between 1809 and 1811 in Vienna, and was dedicated to Archduke Rudolf, Beethoven's patron and pupil.
