5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding modern Brahms! Aug. 23 2008
By Benjamin D. Hoshour - Published on Amazon.com

This is a fabulous recording. Rachel Barton records for a small record company, but all of her discs have been spectacular and this is the best to date. This is Brahms with passion, fire, and technical elegance. The Joachim is the best on disc. Do yourself a favor and sample this little known violinist who deserves a much wider audience.

This CD is simply a gem, a fabulous performance. A great contrast and influence shown by her choices. Saw her perform with La Crosse Symphony Orchestra and she performs with passion and great technical skill.

Rachel Barton Pine and Cedille Records --- what else is there to say? Wonderful recording. As always, her artistry is impeccable and Cedille's work is masterful.

The performances and sound quality are much better than average but the conductor set a slow pace for the Brahms. To my mind the lethargic tempo sapped the composition of its urgency. If you're not familiar with other performances of the Brahms you may be entirely happy with this recording.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best ever of the Brahms! Sept. 23 2009
By Timothy R. O'Hanlon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
For me, the Adagio movement of the Brahms Violin Concerto is clearly about "tuning" or "attunement". It is constructed around or evolves out of four notes, which I'm guessing, if properly sustained, a string player could use to tune his or her instrument. String players generally tune their instruments by listening to one another; tuning requires that the notes be sustained long enough for the players, so one can hear the overtones or harmonics. For the listener, tuning has to do with the ear and how one hears the notes; attunement has to do with the heart and how it "feels" or resonates with the harmonics. When a violinist / conductor rushes this movement, as most do, the notes are dampened and not allowed to fully "bloom". The music may be well performed but is not as emotionally or intellectually "satisfying" as it could have been. Rachel Barton Pine's performance of this movement is the most "satisying" that I have ever heard; quite frankly, it is nothing short of heavenly! The other movements of the Brahms and Joachim Concerto are also masterfully interpreted and performed.
