Rush out to get these performances! These are as good as it gets. In grad school I cut my teeth on the 2nd with Richter/Leinsdorf/CSO and soon got hold of the Fleisher/Szell/CO, learning the 1st with them. Over the years I have sought out acceptable performances of both. There are a lot of recordings, but not so many really good ones, and I gave away many LPs/CDs of ones I found unsatisfactory. But this one I will not throw or give away. It stays. It is a class act of top notch performances.

I didn't know what to expect, really, when I put it up on my video. I put on the 2nd first. I was converted from the outset. What piano performances Barenboim gave in both concertos. Sensational. I had had no previous correspondence with Celibidache other than the marvelous collaborative recording of the Dvorak Cello Concerto done with the incandescent Jacqueline DuPre and the Swedish Radio Symphony. (That with the Giulini/Rostropovich/LPO is my favorite.) I was surprised at how well the Munchner Philharmoniker played under Celibidache and with Barenboim. The orchestra played splendidly, and Barenboim was outstanding.

For several years I have listened fondly to the Haitink/Askenazy/RCO for the 1st and the Haitink/Askenazy/VPO for the 2nd on London. These are still among my favorite performances. I would have to put the Szell/Fleisher/CO as a not so distant second. I have been looking for the performances by Barenboim/Celibidache/MPO ever since I heard part of the 2nd Concerto on Youtube (of all places!). Formerly it existed only on VHS. Now it has been transferred to DVD. It needs to be available on CD But now you can go get it on Amazon.

This is one powerful DVD of great Brahms music.

I have loved Brahms' Scond Piano Concerto ever since I heard it performed by Leon Fleischer under the direction of George Czell and the Cleveland Orchestra. The Czell/Fleischer collaboration on the two Brahms concerti remains for me the hallmark performances of these works. Daniel Barenboim comes a good second to Fleischer. Unfortunately the Cleveland interpretations are not to be had on DVD, and sound reproduction quality has improved over the years. Although thse recordings are not new (1991), the quality is excellent.

When I decided to purchase dvds of both of Brahms's Piano Concertos, these musicians were not on my mind. But now after owning it for two weeks and having played it five times, I am so happy for my choice my joy in both performances spills over to share with you via this review. I would admit that Sergiu Celibidache is not a dynamic conductor; he is very old and his movements appear phlegmatic. However, when the camera pans the orchestra, EVERY musician is energized, completely focused on their music-making. I can only say appearances deceive, because Maestro Celibidache clearly has inspired his musicians. And that leads me to Daniel Barenboim. He is a force of nature in these performances, especially in the mountainous terrain of the first concerto where he commands the heights and gives us the most awesome vistas. I actually prefer the second: I feel it is like a long German Romantic poem. I find myself repeatedly reading Holderlin before or after this concerto. Perhaps Daniel, my namesake, does so too, because his performance is filled with poetry and passion. It must be exhausting to play it, but when he finishes, he accepts the audience's applause with gracious humility, deferring to the orchestra and conductor.This recording captures the essential spirituality of classical music in general and Brahms in particular.
