Performed by David Syme, piano
Accompaniment: Stuttgart Symphony Orchestra
Conductor: Emil Kahn
This mammoth work is a magnificent concerto cast in the composer's trademark Olympian manner-broad melodic lines, a mixture of German classicism and romanticism as only Brahms could do it. Universally admired as one of the all-time great Romantic concerti.
Includes a high-quality printed music score and two compact discs containing a complete version with soloist, in split-channel stereo (soloist on the right channel); then a second version in full stereo of the orchestral accompaniment, minus the soloist.
