Ludwig van Beethoven: Tweede pianoconcert, op. 19 Radio Kamer Filharmonie olv. Frans Brüggen Arthur Jussen, piano
Opgenomen 23 september 2012 tijdens Het Zondagochtend Concert (#zoc) in het Concertgebouw in Amsterdam
The Piano Concerto No. 2 in B-flat major, Op. 19, by Ludwig van Beethoven was composed primarily between 1787 and 1789, although it did not attain the form it was published as until 1795. Beethoven did write another finale for it in 1798 for performance in Prague, but that is not the finale that it was published with. It was used by the composer as a vehicle for his own performances as a young virtuoso, initially intended with the Bonn Hofkapelle. It was published in 1801, by which time he had also published the Piano Concerto No. 1 in C major, although it had been composed after this work, in 1796 and 1797.
