[ Deutsche Grammophon The Originals / CD ]
Release Date: Tuesday 16 March 2004
Géza Anda and Herbert von Karajan have recorded their first LP together, finding a perfectly unified approach to Brahms's Second Piano Concerto that explores its mood swings, its sweetness and bitterness, its lyricism and drama.
And the Berlin Philharmonic guarantees sheer instrumental brilliance.
Münchner Merkur, 1968
" Anda taped Grieg's Piano Concerto in 1964 with Rafael Kubelik leading the Berlin Philharmonic. It was an inspired choice all round. Grieg's Concerto matched Anda with its ardent tone, strong harmonies, and eternally lovely melodies, and Kubelik and the Berlin Philharmonic matched Anda with their singing tone, flexible ensemble, and fabulous feel for color." (AllMusic on Grieg)
