    Feel free to discuss all sorts of concertos here: good, bad; old, new and for every instrument.

    I just bought the Itzhak Pearlman/Chicago Symphony recording of Brahms' Violin Concerto, probably the best recording of it out there in my opinion. Too bad Pearlman (and Stern for that matter) did all that silly whining about playing under Karajan...an unfortunate black mark on an otherwise glorious career.
    "When all hopes of recognition or honor have faded into distant memory, when purity of heart meets sorrow of mind, when all the world seems to walk in blindness, and yet a man works without wearying for that which he loves...only in this moment is passion truly understood." - Franz Schubert, 1827
