HD-Vinyl 24/96 (DGG) Johannes Brahms – Piano Concerto No. 2 (Anda/Karajan)

There is a real electricity in the Brahms interpretion of Geza Anda’s….his sense of pulse and drive really underly the incredible virtuosity of the Berlin Philharmonic. The opening movement moves along at the hectic pace but with some really urgent dramatic high points especially in the development section. Karajan really alots a very special role to the brass in this movement and the inspired playing is a joy…as to the cello solo at the opening of the third movement it is given a really fine treatment by Mr. Finke…then principal of the Berlin Phil. As to the Finale it has a nice relaxed sense of wonder without the hectic nature other conductors ascribe to Brahms here…I really think that this is one of the finest recordings of any music made anywhere.
