Notes & Reviews:

The American pianist Tzimon Barto and the world famous conductor Christoph Eschenbach have had a very long and close friendship together. After their successful Capriccio recording of Tchaikovsky's B flat Minor Concerto they follow up now with recordings of the Brahms Concertos, cornerpieces of the piano concerto literature and further examples of these two artist's close working partnership. Mr. Barto and Mr. Eschenbach, iconoclasts both, offer a new focus on these masterpieces. Also to be heard are Mr. Barto's interpretations of the 4 Ballades, op. 10.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
The four ballades, split between the two discs, are better material for Barto's style. His playing calls forth the romantic, poetic side of the ballades very nicely. The ballades make me wish this had been a recording of Brahms solo piano music instead of the concertos. This is an interesting venture, one you might enjoy hearing.
