the chamber versions

On his new album, pianist See Siang Wong plays the first piano concerto of Chopin as well as the 4th piano concerto by Ludwig van Beethoven in a very special version: instead of a large symphony orchestra, the soloist is accompanied by a chamber music ensemble. These chamber music compositions were made during the composer's lifetime. For this recording, however, See Siang Wong and the Gémeaux Quartet have revised both the string and piano voices for the benefit to the original. A completely new listening experience for these two popular concertos from the classical and romantic era!
