I could have danced all night. Maybe not! But, headphone-adorned, I did stay up into the small hours to experience Beethoven’s quintet of Piano Concertos, one after the other (two tea intervals taken), as played by Stewart Goodyear (born 1978 in Toronto) with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales conducted by Andrew Constantine (4-14 September 2018, Hoddinott Hall, Cardiff). And a very rewarding few hours it was, too. They give us the music as we know and love it, very well prepared and well-judged regarding articulate tempos, always flowing, with particular reference to shapely phrasing, light and shade, dynamic variety and illuminating piano-and-orchestra interplay. If nothing novel, let alone controversial, these accounts rely on wholesome musical values to succeed, which they do, handsomely. To the roll of honour, producer Andrew Keener and engineer Simon Eadon should be mentioned. All cadenzas are by Beethoven, and where there is a choice, Goodyear opts for the long one in the first movement of No.1 and the more-usual of the available pair for the corresponding movement of No.4. Released on Orchid Classics ORC100127 (3 CDs), this set is highly recommended to seasoned collectors and newbies alike; the music lifts off the page with spirit and soul.
