Notes & Reviews:
The only complete Brahms Edition in the market!- The reissue of the successful 2008 Brahms Edition of Brilliant Classics. Little has changed in this new set as compared to the former, and we meet old friends again: Jaap van Zweden (a quickly rising star and chief conductor of Dallas SO) in passionate performances of the symphonies, (other conductors are Wolfgang Sawallish, Neeme Järvi, Rudolf Kempe), a superb line up of ensembles for the chamber music (Tokyo Quartet, Nash Ensemble, Brandis Quartet, Israel Piano Trio, Isabelle Faust, Karl Leister), excellent pianists tackle the piano music: Wolfram Schmitt-Leonardy, Hakon Austbö (reference recording of the Klavierstücke), the highly esteemed Chamber Choir of Europe in the choral music (containing many hidden treasures), and a fine selection of young singers in the complete songs and duets (Lenneke Ruiten, Robert Nagy, Christian Elsner).- Newcomers are Yehudi Menuhin in the violin concerto, Daniel Barenboim in the first piano concerto, Cecile Ousset in the second piano concerto, Kristóf Baráti & Klára Würtz in the violin sonatas and Alfred Brendel & Walter Klien in the Hungarian Dances.- Superb bargain, incredible value for money, and a treasure trove of the famous and lesser known masterworks of Brahms, the great Romantic.
