Brahms Piano Concerto #1

Wow!! Not since the Fleisher/Szell recording have I heard such a compelling recorded performance of the Brahms D Minor Concerto. And available as a relatively inexpensive download, too. I personally think downloading is the way of the future for Classical Music recordings. Thank you, iTunes. Now start digging into the archives of the major and minor record companies, even the monaural and 78 RPM material. There is some wonderful music in those vaults that I'd love to have available once again.

Great performance

I agree with Howard-in-Philly. This performance captures the grand scale of the formal architecture of the Concerto and, at the same time, is full of breathless moments of excitement and rhythmic energy. The combination of Zimerman and Rattle with the Berlin is dynamic. I recommend you give it a listen.

Extraordinarily good performance, extraordinarily good recording quality

This album is wonderful! It captures that quintessential, energetic, yet thick and opulent sound, which I am predisposed to liken to chocolate, that is so necessary for Brahms. The orchestra is perfect, and the pianist is beyond perfect. It is as though the spirit of Brahms possessed this man's performance, and streamed out of his fingers onto the piano. Buy this album, it will astound you.
