Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Georg Tintner
Beethoven five piano concerti in 2 concerts

...Roger Woodward played the five Beethoven piano concertos last week at the Town Hall in two concerts with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra under Georg Tintner.  The works were given in numerical sequence…. Woodward can be a delight to watch, something that is true of few pianists…  the final E flat concerto was a triumph…..

“Woodward played with astonishing calm… in Woodward I sensed the composer’s real intentions…  here is a player with real integrity.”  Christchurch Symphony, Rachmaninov Third Piano Concerto, 1995
