Beethoven on this Sat. Jan 22, 2011

I usually don't like it when the soloist in a concerto is also the conductor... but this conductor is fun to watch and I thought you might enjoy not only the great music by Beethoven but also the video of this soloist/conductor. The conductor is someone who I have never heard of Krystian Zimerman. He sure plays a beautiful Beethoven.  This is the third movement of Beethoven's piano concerto #1.  It was actually composed second but it was published first, so that is why it is called #1 of the 5 great Beethoven piano concerti. 
Enjoy...music and video :)
