Notes & Reviews:

One of the most acclaimed Brahms interpreters of his generation, pianist Emanuel Ax made recordings of the composer's works for both RCA Red Seal and Sony Classical. Collected here for the first time in a new, specially priced two-disc set are Brahms Piano Concerto Nos. 1 and 2. The CDs feature seven-time Grammy winner Ax accompanied by the Chicago and Boston Symphony Orchestras. The set also includes Brahms' Rhapsodies, Intermezzos, and Four Pieces for Piano, and includes liner notes written by Ax himself.
