Notes and Editorial Reviews

Bruno Gelber, one of the world's best Brahms interpreters and a native of Argentina, was a child prodigy who gave his first recital at the age of five. In his mid-20's he performed Brahms's first piano concerto with elemental power and a great feeling for the music's poetic depth. His recording of the famous Handel Variations, with which Brahms paid tribute to the great Baroque master, is unsurpassed to this day.
