4.0 out of 5 stars Bold performances of a popular brace of concertos, 24 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brahms: Violin Concerto; Double Concerto (Audio CD)
I don't know why exactly, but Brahms recordings are probably the most vulnerable to change in my collection and having grown dissatisfied with the Pentatone pairing of the violin and double concertos I opted for this one after sampling online.

The recording is very brilliant, everything (orchestra, soloists) foregrounded in a way that defies concert hall reality: but so what! This is home listening and I can say confidently you won't sit back and listen indifferently to Repin and Chailly. As someone who has experienced doubts about his own ability to concentrate for the duration of a concerto or an opera, I have found myself consistently interested in everything that is happening in Repin's tussle with the orchestra and I'm delighted to say the partnership with Mork for Brahms' Double Concerto has all the pugnacity of the classic Rostropovich/Oistrakh version.

Given the chance I'd like to hear the Shaham/Abbado disc as well, but until that opportunity comes around I'm recommending the new Repin one to anyone looking for a bold and confident Brahms performance which leaps from the speakers with all the insolence of a pop album.
