Notes and Editorial Reviews

“Nicholas Angelich was born to play Brahms,” said The Daily Telegraph, “He has the titanic technique that has to be the first port of call in tackling music of this magnitude and power...” Gramophone, meanwhile, has praised his “wholly exceptional drama, sweep and impeccable craftsmanship” in the composer’s music” This two-CD set unites Angelich’s recordings of the two Brahms Piano Concertos, both with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony and Paavo Järvi. “Nicholas Angelich was born to play Brahms,” said The Daily Telegraph, “He has the titanic technique that has to be the first port of call in tackling music of this magnitude and power...” Gramophone, meanwhile, has praised his “wholly exceptional drama, sweep and impeccable craftsmanship” in the composer’s music” This two-CD set unites Angelich’s recordings of the two Brahms Piano Concertos, both with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony and Paavo Järvi.
