 Stunningly subtle live performances  March 5, 2015 By Paul Chummers (San Jose, CA) See All My Reviews "I first heard this recording of the Paganini Variations on the radio without knowing the performer or conductor. I was stunned by the clarity and orchestral detail supporting the piano soloist. Soloists must have loved to record with Abbado because he always keeps the orchestra in clear detail but not outshining the soloist. This is also true in the concert No. 2. These are live recordings but you would hardly know it except for the rapturous applause at the end of each work." Report Abuse
