Product Description

Analekta presents a new edition of the Brahms Piano Concertos performed by Anton Kuerti and the Orchestre Métropolitain. The most beautiful Brahms' Solo Piano Works complete this new edition. Mr. KUERTI is considered by many to be Canada's foremost active concert pianist. As a chamber musician, he has performed the major repertoire with such artists as Gidon Kremer, Yo-Yo Ma, Janos Starker, Barry Tuckwell, and the Cleveland, Guarneri, and Tokyo String Quartets. Mr.Kuerti is one of today's most recorded artists, having put on disc, to great critical acclaim, all the Beethoven concertos and sonatas, the Schubert sonatas and Brahms piano works. Brahms was one of the few masters equally at home with immense musical structures, such as the Piano Concertos, and with short miniatures, like the Capriccii and Intermezzi featured in this set.

Analekta présente une réédition remasterisée des Concertos pour piano de Brahms interprétés par Anton Kuerti et l'Orchestre Métropolitain, réédition augmentée d'un nouvel enregistrement d'oeuvres pour piano seul de Brahms. M. Kuerti est considéré comme le plus important pianiste de concert au Canada. En tant que chambriste, il a joué avec des artistes tels que Gidon Kremer, Yo-Yo Ma, Janos Starker, Barry Tuckwell et avec les quatuors à cordes de Cleveland, Guarneri et de Tokyo. La discographie d'Anton Kuerti est l'une des plus importantes à l'heure actuelle. La critique a particulièrement acclamé son intégrale des concertos et des sonates de Beethoven et de Schubert. Brahms fut l'un des grands maîtres qui se sentait à l'aise tant avec les structures musicales à grand déploiement tels ses concertos, qu'avec les miniatures, comme les Capriccii et les Intermezzi présenté dans ce coffret.

HASH(0xa16617d4) out of 5 stars A Re-Packaging of Earlier Kuerti Recordings, and at Mid-Price May 18 2007
By J Scott Morrison - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This set of three CDs contains music by Brahms recorded and released previously on the Analekta label. The main selections are the two Brahms Piano Concerti. I'm very fond of Kuerti's playing, which tends to be poetic rather than dramatic -- for me that is a plus, especially in the first concerto which can sound rough or overfreighted with 'meaning' in other hands. Included are also a number of latish solo pieces. Kuerti is accompanied by Montréal's second orchestra, the Orchestre Métropolitain du Grand Montréal, and while they are not as silken as the Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal, they are acceptable at worst and exceptional at best. (That beautiful extended cello solo in the third movement of the Second Concerto is played gorgeously.)

I would refer you to Dan Fee's review that appears at the earlier release's product page: Brahms: Piano Concertos/Intermezzi for further information about the playing of the two concerti and the Op. 117 Intermezzi.
