Jayson Gillham’s concert recording of the Beethoven complete piano concertos is released on ABC Classic

On 28 February ABC Classic  announced the release of the complete piano concertos by Beethoven, performed by Australian-British pianist Jayson Gillham, with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra  conducted by Nicholas Carter. This cycle – the first in twenty years recorded with an Australian pianist, conductor and orchestra – is a major contribution to the ongoing celebrations of Beethoven’s 250th anniversary.

Recorded in five concerts performed over 10 days at Adelaide’s Elder Hall in June 2019, these recordings capture a soloist, conductor and orchestra totally in synch with each other, with a shared vision for the sound world and rhetoric of these mighty works. Reviews of the concert remarked at the “chamber music-like intimacy” between the performers, with a “sense of balance and support… often never heard before within these well-known and much listened to works” (Limelight).
