Ronald Brautigam Awarded at MIDEM 2010

“A superbly articulated performance … enriched by a magnificent orchestral accompaniment.”

At this year’s MIDEM, the international gathering of the music industry in Cannes, Ronald Brautigam accepted an award for his recording of Beethoven’s Second Piano Concerto (BIS-SACD-1792).
The MIDEM Classical Awards are bestowed by a jury consisting of representatives for the international music press and media, who selected Ronald Brautigam’s recording as the best concerto disc of 2009. Part of a cycle of Beethoven’s complete works for piano and orchestra, the disc also features a rarely heard early work by the composer, the Piano Concerto WoO4, for which Brautigam himself has made the reconstruction of the orchestral score.
Brautigam’s partners in this project, which will be concluded in 2010 by the release of Piano Concerto No.5 and the Choral Fantasy, are the Norrköping Symphony Orchestra and conductor Andrew Parrott.

    Last week I got this CD on a concert with SON here in Norrköping Sweden at Dee Geer Hallen. I must say it sounds great! The CD is also in SACD format for those who have hightech HiFi equipment.

    In swedish public radio (P2 – Aurora) they played a pice from this recording the 10th of february 2010.

    You’ll also learn important things like how to play the piano to communicate a feeling or emotion. Composers create a piece of music to express something, and by learning music language you will be able to understand the feeling the composer intended and be able to communicate it exactly!
