Mihaela Ursuleasa - Beethoven 3

Here, through the kindness of others, is the first of a little clutch of recordings that will add substantially to the trove I've been gathering as a tribute to Mihaela Ursuleasa, whose untimely death at 33 was deeply felt in the musical world.

Here's a splendid recording of Beethoven's third piano concerto, recorded in Bucharest on the 4th of May 2010. With the Romanian Radio Chamber Orchestra conducted by Horia Andreescu.

Not only do you get the concerto, at 320 kbs, but two encores, including one that Ursuleasa had made her calling card, the mercurial Joc Dobrogean. 

Beethoven : Piano Concerto No 3 in c minor
Encore - Paul Constantinescu/  Joc Dobrogean – veloce (quasi una Toccata)
Encore - Haydn / Sonata No. 59 In E Flat Major, Hob. XVI/ 49/ III. Finale

Mihaela Ursuleasa, Romanian Radio Chamber Orchestra, Horia Andreescu
