Notes and Editorial Reviews

An epic performance of an epic work. Brahms' third piano sonata, (a veiled symphony, according to Schumann) contains all the young man's ambitions and passions, alternating with excessive drama and tenderness. Bruno-Leonardo Gelber, a pianistic comet from Argentina, displays his prodigious powers and infinite delicacy in this towering performance, one of the best in the catalogue. Superb Denon recording, by famous engineer Peter Willemoës. An epic performance of an epic work.
