Now comes Gil Shaham in a live recording of the Violin Concerto which in its urgency and sense of drama is one of the most impressive for a long time [...]. The disc makes a splendid supplement to Abbado's outstanding Brahms series with the Berlin Philharmonic. [...] Shaham crowns his performance (of the Violin Concerto) with a brilliant account of the finale, a daringly fast "Allegro" which consistently brings out the second marking, "giocoso", underlining the impulsive folk-dance element with a hint of wildness, in which he finds a perfect ally in Abbado. [...]
Altogether an outstanding issue and a clear recommendation."

Their live performance stresses the lyrical quality of Brahms' Violin Concerto. There are many fine details in this mellow and relaxed interpretation.

Gil Shaham and Claudio Abbado's performance of the Brahms Violin Concerto is one of the most exciting, heartfelt, and ravishingly executed performances of this warhorse on disc . . . Shaham is simply stupendous, bringing to the solo violin part all the passion, fire, and technical aplomb one could wish for . . . Shaham always puts musical considerations ahead of technical experience.

Urgently recommended.

Passionnante par son engagement, la version Gil Shaham/Claudio Abbado est la meilleure parmi les plus récentes.
