Music For The Day

More Maurizio Pollini today. This time a complete, recent recording of Brahm’s First Piano Concerto, accompanied by the Staatskapelle Dresden under the baton of Christian Thielemann.

 

A fine recording by a great pianist – though I favour the Emil Gilels recording and (perhaps predictably) the bootleg Carnegie Hall recording of Gould/Bernstein, this one holds up quite well in comparison.
