What does original mean here?

Beethoven wrote five piano concertos – but no, Olli Mustonen is not playing any of them. Instead, he has Beethoven's piano version of his Violin Concerto in his luggage, which he has been performing with enthusiasm for years. The effect is confusing: of course you know the music, but then again you don't ... So this work is entirely to the taste of the Finnish pianist and lateral thinker, who always likes to present things a little differently. The concert is conducted by Paavo Järvi, who adds two more Beethoven pieces: The overture "The Consecration of the House" at the beginning, and Symphony No. 2 at the end.
