Mayer: Faust Ouvertüre

Marc Niemann – conductor
When Ludwig was still called Louis van Beethoven, he wrote his Piano Concerto in E-flat Major WoO4 at the age of 14. Mari Kodama, the soloist of the concert, has recorded the work in 2019 together with her husband Kent Nagano and the Deutsches Sinfonieorchester Berlin for the label Berlin Classics in an exemplary manner. This youthful work captivates with its carefreeness and already foreshadows the genius of later years.
