Notes & Reviews:

This new recording of both of Brahms' Piano Concertos features two artists and one orchestra, all of whom are recognized around the world for their individual talents. Daniel Barenboim performs the solo piano part while Gustavo Dudamel conducts the Staatskapelle Berlin in these live and thrilling recordings.\

Gramophone
Like all great Brahms interpreters, Barenboim gives the music space... [the Berlin Staatskapelle] produces a Brahms sound of rare depth and beauty under the direction of Barenboim's chosen collaborator Gustavo Dudamel. Some of the quiet playing has to be heard to be believed.

BBC Music Magazine, November 2015
[These accounts] capture on the wing a vibrant partnership between grand maestro at the piano and young lion on the podium... occasional moments of unexpected magic flair up, such as the vibrant exchange between piano and cellos in the second movement of [the Second Concerto], and I defy anyone to breathe during its slow movement in the minutes before the return of the cello solo (whose player, incidentally, deserves a credit, but doesn't get one).
