Murray Perahia and Simon Rattle with Schumann’s Piano Concerto

Murray Perahia is one of the great poets among pianists, as this performance of Robert Schumann’s Piano Concerto reveals. Its qualities – melodic playing, gentle story-telling and Romantic rhapsodising – are brilliantly realised by Perahia. Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem is a similarly sensitive work: a funeral mass of almost serene tranquillity. Simon Rattle conducts the Berliner Philharmoniker and the Rundfunkchor Berlin.
