A guarded welcome for the Ashkenazy/VPO/Mehta partnership in Beethoven’s first two Piano Concertos. Ashkenazy’s earlier Chicago collaboration with Solti – underlined by greater tension, more expressive freedom and tighter orchestral attack, as well as cleaner pianism – is preferable. Likewise his own later (conductorless) version with the Cleveland Orchestra (both Decca). Ates Orga
