Brahms: Piano Concertos Nos. 1 & 2
Thrilling, deeply personal interpretations of the dark, passionate sound-worlds of both Brahms piano concertos. A unique, multi-faceted artist who continues to push creative boundaries, Grimaud is one of few pianists to conquer the monumental dimensions of the epic Op.83. Recorded under studio conditions in Viennas legendary Musikverein, the 2nd Piano Concerto marks Grimaud’s debut recording with the celebrated Wiener Philharmoniker; coupled with the equally coveted Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks for the 1st Concerto, Grimaud has discovered exemplary musical counterparts.
Conductor Andris Nelsons dubbed Der Wunderdirigent by the Süddeutsche Zeitung is one of today’s most exciting young interpreters of Romantic repertoire.
