These works share the common key of E flat major but represent two very different stages in the composer’s life. The Piano Concerto "No. 0," WoO 4, was written when Beethoven was 13 years old and is one of his earliest works. With the orchestral score lost, this extant version for piano solo written in Beethoven’s hand includes the tutti sections reduced for piano. The radiant ‘Emperor’ Concerto shows the 38-year-old Beethoven at the peak of his creative powers, and remains a glorious example of his spirit triumphing over life’s adversities.

REVIEW:

“Boris Giltburg plays with the youthful panache. His legato playing is beautifully sustained, making this example of early Beethovenian lyricism a real gem. Petrenko accompanies with real flair." – ClassicsToday.com (reviewing Beethoven: Piano Concerto’s Nos. 1 & 2; Naxos 8.574151
