Die fünf Klavierkonzerte Beethovens gehören zum Kernrepertoire jedes Pianisten und sind fester Bestandteil des Konzertbetriebs. Das 3. Klavierkonzert op. 37 ist das einzige in Moll, mit dem 4. Klavierkonzert G-Dur op. 58 hat Beethoven das Klavierkonzert aus dem Salon in den Konzertsaal geholt und verbindet Sinfonie und Klavierkonzert zum sog. sinfonischen Klavierkonzert. Beide Werke hat Beethoven selbst uraufgeführt. Die portugiesische Pianistin Maria João Pires, die im Juli ihren 70. Geburtstag feiert, ist neben Martha Argerich die Grande Dame des Klaviers. Zusammen mit dem Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra unter Daniel Harding legt sie hier eine wirklich bemerkenswerte Interpretation dieser beiden Konzerte vor
