Carlo Maria Giulini (1914-2005) and Itzhak Perlman collaborated with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in this famous 1976 EMI recording. I have heard this criticized as having an overly slow Ist movement. Having listened to this, I do not find I overly slow, but rather a bit leisurely, giving the conductor, orchestra and soloist TIME to really interact and do some special touches with Brahms’ orchestration. II and III are definitely in the same league tempo wise, with many other recordings. The recorded sound is excellent and the Chicago Symphony plays with great authority and precision.
