Warner Classics continue releasing iconic recordings of the core catalog in their original cover artwork on LP to benefit from the booming vinyl market. Heroic, dramatic, reflective and joyous, Brahms's Violin Concerto, written for the great Joseph Joachim, a close friend of the composer, is one of the monuments of the Romantic repertoire. In a performance of epic sweep, Itzhak Perlman and Carlo Maria Giulini do full justice to its ambitions.
This record has been regarded at the time it was released as "one of the greatest Brahms recordings of all time" (Guide Diapason). Forty years after its original release, it remains an absolute must-have, and a reference recording of the Brahms Concerto. It also benefits from the 24-Bit/96kHz remastering done at Abbey Road in 2015.
