for the Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No. 3 c minor op. 37, 1. movement by Ludwig van Beethoven


The volume unites 11 cadenzas from 200 years of music history to form one of the most frequently performed concertos in the piano literature, including several first publications. Among them are not solely highly virtuoso and, sometimes, even romantic lyrical tributes to the genius of classical music, but also cadences with a humorous and ironic touch: Fazıl Say’s cadence imitated – a music box!
