Krystian Zimerman plays Brahms

Krystian Zimerman is someone who looks for the truth behind the notes with a ruthless unwillingness to compromise – which is why all of his recordings are a precious rarity. Here, we present his performance of Brahms’s Piano Concerto No. 1 from June 2015. The performance with Sir Simon Rattle is as multifaceted as Brahms’s work: floating poetically, spirited and forceful, but always infused with the dark introspection of late Romanticism.
