Beethoven - Triple Concerto: Vinyl LP

£35.99

Release date: 4 October, 2024

Three of the world’s greatest classical stars join forces to record Beethoven’s Triple Concerto. All alumni of the BBC Young Musician competition, they are great friends but this is the first time they have appeared on record together. They have a joint reach of over 1 million and are all touring regularly internationally. The first recording of the work on Decca Classics, Nicky, Sheku and Benjamin toured the concerto around the UK in 2023, after which they recorded it with the Philharmonia and their Principal Conductor Santtu-Matias Rouvali. The works are accompanied by a selection of Beethoven’s rarely performed Folk Songs, along with celebrated baritone Gerald Finley. Reflecting the Scottish, Welsh, Irish and English roots of the musicians, the album concludes with the trio alone: Kreisler’s arrangement of ‘Londonderry Air’, often known as ‘Danny Boy’.
