HD-Vinyl 24/192 (RCA Living Stereo) Johannes Brahms – Piano Concerto No. 1 (Rubinstein/Reiner)

Many thanks to our friend Jean-Luc for this beautiful reissue
The Brahms D minor Concerto is a difficult work to pull off successfully: the piano part is ungrateful, and often drowned out by an overorchestrated accompaniment. Also, many pianists–most notably Glenn Gould–tend to drag the tempos beyond all reason. Rubinstein, who was ten years old when Brahms died, would never have considered such a nonsensical approach. The Concerto was written early in Brahms career, and was the work of a passionate young man. In essence, Brahms without the beard. This is the first stereo recording, taped in 1954, to be made of this Concerto. (The stereo version, however, was not released until 1977).
