About

Recorded ‘live’ at the Semperoper, Dresden, in January 2013, this performance of Brahms’s Piano Concerto No.2 reunited the dream-team of Maurizio Pollini and the Staatskapelle orchestra under Christian Thielemann.

Pollini and Thielemann have already won a prestigious ECHO award for their DG recording of the first concerto, released in 2012.

Brahms’s second piano concerto has had a particularly notable history in the city of Dresden, where the composer himself played the work twice on the stage of the Semperoper - where this recording was made.

The resolve and self-assurance with which Pollini played here was fascinating. The sound was able to gain in breadth and depth. Christian Thielemann accompanied with great attention and with tightly coiled flexibility.’ Dresdner Neueste Nachrichten.
