Brahms: Double Concerto: Violin Concerto (CD)
Although noted for his fearless and thrilling performances of music by Paganini for Deutsche Grammophon, Salvatore Accardo also recorded extensively for Philips in the 1970s and 80s. His repertoire ranged from Baroque music through to 19th and 20th century concertos. Here, he’s featured in sumptuous performances of two of Brahms’ greatest concertos recorded spaciously at the Gewandhaus in Leipzig in 1978 with Kurt Masur.
