Martin Helmchen : Martin Helmchen: Shostakovich Piano Concertos, LPO, Vladimir Jurowski

German pianist Martin Helmchen and conductor Vladimir Jurowski discuss the thrill and immediacy of live recordings in this case the two piano concertos of Dmitri Shostakovich. The LPO CD Label recording captures the emotional exuberance of the concert performances and Helmchens affinity for the works which he has played his whole life. Paul Beniston is the trumpet soloist in the first concerto. The CD will be released in April 2011. Produced by Borletti-Buitoni Trust www.bbtrust.com
