CD Reviews

Czech out the Brahms 2nd
Robert L. Berkowitz | Natick, MA United States | 01/25/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have many performances of Brahms Piano Concerto #2 including Arrau, Ax, Barenboin, Fleisher, Gilels, Horowitz, Hough, Richter and Zimerman. I purchased Moravec's recording because, in my experience, he often has something unique to say about the music.I am very pleased with this recording. There are all the individual touches I expected in a performance by Moravec and the stereo sound is beautiful (this is a 1988 digital recording). Probably the most unusual aspect of the recording is the outstanding playing by the Czech Philharmonic. The ensemble is unusually tight, and the level of orchestral detail is more apparent in this recording than others. Given that Brahms' concerto is like a chamber piece writ large, the presence of the additional detail is most welcome. This recording has become a very welcome addition to my collection. I recommend it highly."

"Music lovers will want to know: Supraphon has not retired this recording, it has remastered it and reissued it on (SU 3865). The new 2 CD set includes BOTH Brahms Concertos. Both are among the finest performances ever recorded of these works - now with better sound, and at a better bargain than ever."
