A thrilling performance of Mahler’s most debated symphony.
A superb audio and video experience.
A benchmark performance and live recording of this Mahler favorite.
Riccardo Chailly grants us a “revisionist” Brahms that departs from his 2005 cycle and reverts to the Classic detail and architecture of his model, Felix Weingartner.
BRAHMS: Violin Concerto in D Major, Op. 77; 4 Hungarian Dances; BARTOK: Rhapsody No. 1 for Violin and Piano; Rhapsody No. 2 for Violin and Piano – Leonidas Kavakos, violin/ Peter Nagy, p./ Gewandhausorchester/Riccardo Chailly – Decca
Kavakos’ first Decca release features a potent, loftily mounted Brahms Concerto and a selection of “gypsy” salon works.
An excellent performance with great surround and interesting extras, including the playing of Mahler’s own Welte roll of a movement from the Fourth.
No jazz, but a glorious concert in a glorious setting, preserved with the best in visuals & audio.
Youthful virtuoso takes a decidedly sanguine approach to five of Bach’s piano concertos, assisted in all matters of infectious but sometimes heavy brio by Riccardo Chailly.
GERSHWIN: Rhapsody in Blue; Catfish Row–Sym. Suite; Concerto in F; Rialto Ripples – Stefano Bollani, p./Gewandhaus Orch./Riccardo Chailly – Decca
American Gershwin from Leipzig, and done in blazing colors by Bollani and Chailly.
