Gramophone, September 2016

BEETHOVEN, L. van: Piano Concerto No. 1 / SCHUBERT, F.: Symphony No. 5 / MOZART, W.A.: Piano Concerto No. 22 (A. Schiff) (NTSC) 736508
BEETHOVEN, L. van: Piano Concerto No. 1 / SCHUBERT, F.: Symphony No. 5 / MOZART, W.A.: Piano Concerto No. 22 (A. Schiff) (Blu-ray, HD) 736604

It’s not entirely accurate to say that Schiff directs the concertos from the keyboard: at the openings and whenever he has more than a few bars’ rest, he jumps up to shape the music by hand. Not that he doesn’t direct from the keyboard too: there’s a delicious moment in the Beethoven when he turns to the woodwind and tootles an imaginary pipe at them. © 2016 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone
