    Brahms: Symphony No. 1. Karajan/Berlin. Inspired by the current thread, Karajan's 60's Brahms is certainly one of his best in my opinion. (I also have the 70's and 80's Berlin and some Philharmonia.) This remastering sounds great to my ears as well. Recommended.

    Got his Brahms firs with vienna, for me one of the best first need to listen with Berliner.

    I think a high-rez transfer was also released in 2017.

    In any case, very good sound quality and perf.

    Liszt: Piano Concertos/ Malédiction, S121 Op. 452.

    Alexandre Kantorow (piano)

    Tapiola Sinfonietta, Jean-Jacques Kantorow



    Gramophone Magazine September 2015

    Kantorow has a marvellous leggiero touch, but when Liszt asks for con furore, ffff avec enthousiasme, il più presto possible, then Kantorow does not hold back with thrilling bravura, aided by the exemplary support of his violinist-conductor father…it is hard not to be impressed by Kantorow in the concertos, but the Malédiction is why you should buy the disc.
