In 2001, pianist Anna Gourari released a Beethoven album on Koch Schwann together with the Staatskapelle Dresden under Sir Colin Davis whose recordings were originally created for the film “Invincible” by director Werner Herzog. Anna Gourari herself participated in that film, playing a pianist in a cabaret orchestra who finally gets the chance to perform Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto with a symphony orchestra.
This album is one of a first batch of 11 albums from the Koch Schwann catalogue to be released digitally for the first time. See the full set of releases.
