    Default Help with Brahms Double Concerto

    Does anyone know of a recording of the Double Concerto with female artists for both soloists? I cannot find one.

    No. I have a rather good one with Julia Fischer but she has a man playing the cello.

    Is this just a question of curiosity, or is there a particularly musical reason for such specific characteristics?

    I actually have a preference for female musicians. It is literally a sexual preference. I enjoy listening to a recording more if it is by a female recording artist.

    I have the recording with Julia Fischer.

    I think my fantasy recording of this would be Nicola Benedetti whispering in one ear and Sol Gabetta in the other.

    Do you prefer with clothes on, or off? And if you turned on a radio and the performance was in media res, could you reliably identify the gender of the performers?

    I have two recordings of the Beethoven Triple Concerto with three female soloists. The better of the two is with the Claremont Trio, the other is with the Eroica Trio. I'm sure most people would say there are lots of better performances and recordings available with male soloists, but they don't tickle my fancy the way these do.

    That's hilarious. How could I listen properly with my clothes on?

    Found one such recording mentioned on MusicWeb. I don't know the soloists (Yuriko Horigome, violin & Viviane Spanoghe, cello) but they're joined by the Czech Philharmonic conducted by JoAnn Falletta on TALENT Records no. DOM 291099. Available from Arkiv apparently.

    Hope this fulfills your deepest darkest desires.
