1 Nov 2011
Composer: Johannes Brahms
Other participants: Daniel Barenboim ·
Sergiu Celibidache · Münchner Philharmoniker
This DVD presents Brahms’s two piano concertos, composed at opposite ends of his creative years. The first work evinces a titanic struggle, while the second is warmer and rounder, but no less passionate, and shows Brahms at his consummate best. Both concertos are given outstanding performances by Barenboim, Celibidache and the Münchner Philharmoniker. Recorded in Munich and Erlangen, 1991.
