BRAHMS Piano Quintet op. 34 / Pollini 4748392

. . . this remains unrivalled.

Maurizio Pollini and the Quartetto Italiano in Brahms sounds like a dream ticket -- and so it proves to be . . . the legendary luminosity of sound is still there, as is the beautiful precision, perfectly complemented by Pollini's clarity and control of touch.

. . . lecture ardente, colorée, pleine de vie. Historique, en un mot.
