From my standpoint this is the very best recording of Brahms 2nd Concerto I've heard. Mr. Dichter, who possesses a great technique (no questions about it) makes a remarkable reading of this concerto with very detailed and polished phrasing, a subtle and absolute control of the melodically perfect Brahms' inner voices while never losing the orchestral Brahms of sight. Orchestra is very well conducted by Maestro Masur, who found - along with Mr. Dichter - a unique prism that, at least on my particular taste, means absolute perfection.
3rd Mov here is still waiting for an adjective which could describe how it's played. I have around 1000+ CDs of classical piano music and consider myself a passionate listener with a decent musical culture, and this is my favorite CD. Thanks to the performers and to the audio engineers involved.
