This edition collects virtuoso Marc-André Hamelin's own cadenzas for the first four piano concerti of Beethoven. Each is dedicated to a different pianist: The cadenza for the First Concerto is inscribed to Bertrand Chamayou, the cadenza for the Second is dedicated to keyboardist and conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin, and the cadenza for the Third Concerto is dedicated to Igor Levit, while Hamelin has dedicated his cadenzas for both the first and third movements of the Fourth Concerto to his wife, the pianist and presenter Cathy Fuller.
