A Brahms evening with Sir Simon Rattle and Lars Vogt

Johannes Brahms is sometimes described as reserved and austere – an utterly mistaken notion, when one hears the wonderfully dreamy Adagio of his First Piano Concerto. The work also captivates with its expansive sound, providing a clue that the concerto was once planned as a symphony. The interpreters of this recording are Simon Rattle and Lars Vogt. The concert ends with Brahms’s lyrical, melodious Second Symphony.
