Format: Audio CD
Baremboim's performance of the piano concertos with Barbirolli is among the most inspired ever committed to disc, and show the performer at his finest; while the Tragic Ouverture and Haydn Variation show the conductor at his finest.
It is a performance to love in his spontaneity, which still remain the best.
Highly reccommended

5.0 out of 5 stars A great set 7 Feb. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's hard to believe that Barenboim was only in his 20s when he recorded these concertos; the performances show emotional depth far beyond his years. Barbirolli and the New Philharmonia provide beautiful playing and the entire production is cohesive, powerful, and the remastered sound is amazingly good. While it won't displace the Fleisher/Szell or the Gilels/Jochum sets, it's essential listening for anyone who loves this music.

5.0 out of 5 stars As close to Klemp as we can ask for. 8 May 2004
By Ryan Kouroukis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This set of the Brahms Piano concerto's blew me away. Barenboim was on fire, he plays them big and chunky (just the way I like it!) and as if they were live performances! Barbirolli and the New Philharmonia Orchestra give such blazing support in both that my jaw dropped!

Here's the thing:

Otto Klemperer never got a chance to record the Brahms piano concertos with Barenboim (like in the Beethoven concertos). But "Danny-Boy" and "Barber-Oily's" recordings are as close as we can get to an interpretation Klemperer would have had. Recorded in the late 60's, you can tell that there's that "Klemp" sound in the New Philharmonia, as if he was conducting!

All I have to say is this:

"Gilels/Jochum, you have competition now, watch out!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't you wish he'd stayed at the keyboard? 25 July 2000
By Mark McCue - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This five star production infuriates me--why has Barenboim inflicted himself on the world as a two-star conductor when he was consistently doing five-star work from the keyboard?
This is the perfect case in point. This is one of the great traversals of these two big things, individual without being quirky, technically assured, interpretatively clear, thoughtful, astute. Of course, Barbirolli is responsible in part for this, but his collaboration is what was needed to fill out a perceptive rather than noisy and even elegant presentation. All this in Brahms: that's rare.
We're not going to be forgetting Rubenstein, Fleisher, Backhaus, Gilels, Richter on a good day, Bachauer and a few others. We're just going to keep remembering to include Barenboim in that select group.
This disc would be unalloyed joy...if we just didn't have that nagging feeling that we're listening to a great artist who took the advice of a mediocre career counselor.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW, that's power 18 Oct. 2000
By mcnoldy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A fantastic 2-CD set of some of the finest piano music out there. I'm a big fan of Mozart's piano concertos, and this is going to proudly share the same shelf with those CDs. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unmatched power and authority 10 Nov. 2005
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The other reviewers have stated all the things I feel about this 1967 set of the two Brahms concertos from Barenboim and Barbirolli. These are grand, broad readings--the Second Concerto in particular is among the slowest on record. (Gilels and Jochum, also slow, sound ponderous and "official" by comparison.) Soloist and conductor give themselves time to phrase with great expressivity, but what really keeps the tempo from lagging is Barenboim's powerful pianism, abetted by EMI's under-the-lid miking. There's not a seocnd when the piano sound isn't two inches from your ears.

If you want to hear Brahms interpreted very personally, as if he really matters, this set is one of a kind.
