Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is music from the heart and soul. No showmanship here. Instead, Achucarro offers cultivated, disciplined devotion and a technique so brilliant that it's almost self-effacing. Some may find this less muscular playing than they are looking for. Certainly one should not expect Richter or Gilels! And the opening may, in fact, be too polite for its own good. But the third movement-- with its impassioned cello solo-- reaches surprising depths and is the crux of the experience.

Colin Davis takes his cue from the pianist and keeps the LSO sound so mellow the big band almost feels like a chamber orchestra. There may be performances with more fire, but few with such civilized craft.

Don't miss Achucarro's performance of the Brahms Op 117 in the extras.
