As you probably know, Beethoven's first should really be his second, as it was written after what we call No. 2, though it was published first. It is a masterpiece. The first DGG recording by Christoph Eschenbach was always a top recommendation.

Long ago when I heard the Beethoven 2nd concerto on the radio I always mistook it for a Mozart concerto until it got to the humongus cadenza that Beethoven wrote years later. I think it makes the 1st movement lop-sided. Are there any recordings that use the original cadenza?

James Ginn -- Before I finally got it drummed into my head, I also would tune in, say, to the second movement of Beethoven's second concerto on FM and listen, wondering which Mozart concerto this is. Then the Rondo would tell me otherwise.
