It's always a pleasant surprise when a budget label offers us performances as good as these. Ilya Kaler and Maria Kliegel blend in one of the best performances of the Brahms Concerto I've ever heard. They are both "big" enough for the music, which they play on a grand scale. But they also blend well and selflessly into an integrated performance with the strong orchestra and conductor. Brahms, that lover of chamber music, would have been delighted. Kliegel's Schumann Concerto is very romantic, with a lot of phrase bending, but she keeps within the bounds of good taste and again the orchestra provides strong collaboration. --Leslie Gerber
The violinist is Ilya Kaler and the orchestra the NSO of Ireland. The ensemble play with fluidity and the recording is very natural.
The Schumann, one of my favourite pieces, is excellent too! A really good bargain CD for your collection.
