Editorial Reviews

This new release of the Europakonzert blu-ray series on recorded excellence follows the Berlin Philharmonic on their journey through the continent. This 1994 concert was recorded at the Staatstheater Meiningen five years after the German Reunification. The evening began with the majestic Fifth piano concerto in E flat major by Beethoven as a virtuoso performance by Claudio Abbado and Daniel Barenboim, followed by Brahms's Symphony No. 2 in D major Op. 73.

Format: Blu-ray
This concert from 1994 is described as having been 'lovingly restored' and upgraded to Blu-ray from pre-HD source material. This has indeed been done and the upgrade is very successful. The picture image is presented in 16:9 format and has been done carefully so that there are no issues with unfortunate cropping of heads etc. The sound is arguably better than that which one would expect from a 1994 stereo CD and this is because of larger file sizes giving greater resolution plus the addition of good surround sound.

The two performances are both excellent and very rewarding. Barenboim has recorded the 'Emperor' concerto many times now and there is even another one available on a recent Blu-ray/DVD with all four of Beethoven's other piano concertos. This is a larger scale performance with more of a nod to the Romantic period. This is not excessive and is unlikely to worry 'period' enthusiasts. It is likely to delight all other viewers for that same reason. Abbado is an attentive and supportive conductor and the orchestra make the most of the opportunities for musical dialogue between each other and the soloist. Barenboim is fully responsive to this individual and corporate partnership. The recording enables the viewer to follow this with ease but without being visually invasive.

The Brahms second symphony is a fine performance and it is worth mentioning at this point that Abbado's survey of the four Brahms' symphonies on CD with the BPO from much the same period is considered to be one of the most successful of recent times. That easy rapport is evident throughout this performance.
