Brahms Piano Concerto No. 1 | Bartók Concerto for Orchestra

A warm bath for the listener, a tour de force for the soloist: Brahms’s First Piano Concerto is a work of extremes. ‘Some passages are almost unplayable,’ admits Emanuel Ax. ‘But therein lies its charm.’ Ax is unequalled in this music, which shifts between tempestuousness and tranquillity – qualities that links Brahms’s early work to Bartok’s late masterpiece: Concerto for Orchestra
