 Lusty, precise performance December 15, 2016 By Ronald H. (Bellevue, WA) See All My Reviews "The double concerto is one of my favorite works. Its typical Brahms precision is only made better by the passionate performance of the two soloists -- and the recording quality is excellent. The subtle, interior orchestral bits are clean and crisp. The excellent reading of the Mendelssohn is a bonus!" Report Abuse
