Performed by David Syme, piano

Accompaniment: Stuttgart Symphony Orchestra

Conductor: Emil Kahn

This mammoth work is a magnificent concerto cast in the composer's trademark Olympian manner-broad melodic lines, a mixture of German classicism and romanticism as only Brahms could do it. Universally admired as one of the all-time great Romantic concerti. Includes a high-quality printed music score and two compact discs containing a complete version with soloist, in split-channel stereo (soloist on the right channel); then a second version in full stereo of the orchestral accompaniment, minus the soloist.

    I've been wanting to learn this concerto for a while, and I saw this CD accompaniment, so it seemed like a good idea. The sheet music is fine - easy to read, etc - but the CDs are not good at all. It sounds to me like the orchestra played one...

    track, and the pianist is added on top for the other track - either that or the orchestra has no regard whatsoever for the pianists tempi and movement.
