Rudolf Buchbinder performs concertos by Beethoven & Haydn
Performance date: 30/05/2020
It's not at all easy to explain what musical humour actually is; but one recognizes it immediately in the final movements of the piano concertos by Haydn and Beethoven performed here. And few pianists are as firmly rooted in the piano repertoire of the Viennese Classical period as Rudolf Buchbinder, who makes the humorous elements – toying with expectations, surprising accents and sudden changes of key – sparkle with verve or emerge with understatement. In this concert with the Munich Philharmonic, Buchbinder, who often needs little more than with a wink or a smile as he plays to mark the orchestral entries, performs the double role of soloist and musical director.
