    Classic accounts with one of my favourite singers as an extra bonus!

    Brahms: Piano Concerto No.2 & Ballads Op. 10 Emil Gilels with the Berlin Philharmonic conducted by Eugen Jochum 0n DG
    Brahms Piano Concerto 2.jpg

    One of the biggest 19th century piano concertos. Very much the antithesis of the typical romantic concerto - in four substantial movements - it's almost like a symphony. A solo cello competes for attention in the slow movement.

    Much as I like this concerto I think I prefer the youthful vigour (and almost anger) of the 1st Piano Concerto.

    Excellent performance.

    Three imposing first symphonies:

    Brahms


    Sibelius


    Last but not least, the First Symphony by the Estonian Kaljo Raid


    This specific symphony has been a real revelation lately. In the full glory of late-romantic music, it's a very well done symphony by a young man of 22 years old. Deservedly recommended.
