Notes & Reviews:

Their paths crossed many times, and each occasion was remarkable. Maurizio Pollini and Claudio Abbado, both from Milan, began their collaboration in the 1960s. Their lasting musical dialogue is documented in this 8CD collection from Deutsche Grammophon, featuring their Beethoven and Brahms cycles as well as piano concertos by Schumann, Schoenberg and Bartók. Includes new booklet text by Paolo Petazzi in English and Italian.
