Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brahms: Piano Concertos [Stephen Hough, Mark Wigglesworth] [Hyperion: CDA67961] (Audio CD)
These are very good performances but I feel that they are safe and worthy rather than exciting. I think no 2 is better than no 1 which frankly I think is a bit dull. There's nothing wrong with the playing by Hough or by the orchestra but I didn't get out of my chair and clap!
I guess it comes down to personal taste but for me the recent Grimaux release is better, much better in no 1. Brahms: Piano Concertos
