Produktbeskrivelse

Following his still-little-known first account with Enrique Jorda on the podium, and made nine years before his celebrated partnership with George Szell and the LSO, this is Clifford Curzon’s second recording for Decca of Brahms’s First Piano Concerto, a work which defined his reputation in the 1950s and early 60s as an imperious yet deeply introspective artist, just as his later work on Mozart with Benjamin Britten and Beethoven with Boulez revealed more spontaneously lyrical and less rigorous aspects to his pianism.

And for all that Curzon was renowned in this work for ‘revealing the inner soul of Brahms’ (Fanfare), his partnership with Eduard van Beinum never underplays the bold and craggy drama of the work, or the sense of it as a young man’s statement to the world, in terms of both Brahms the would-be symphonic composer and Brahms the fully-formed keyboard lion of his age.

The Concerto is complemented here by the two Brahms overtures which Van Beinum recorded in December 1952 for Decca (mono) and then again in 1958 in stereo for Philips (reissued on ELQ4429788).
