“Vengerov captures the improvisatory quality of the music, and . . . has somewhere to go when Brahms asks him to slow down. There are all sorts of little details which make his performance continually fascinating: just hear the care with which he approaches and leaves trills.” — BBC Music Magazine

An artistic pairing of legends: violinist Maxim Vengerov and Daniel Barenboim, at the keyboard and leading the famed Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Hear here a riveting live performance of Johannes Brahms’ Op. 77 Violin Concerto, laden with brisk tempi and Vengerov’s own cadenza, with the CSO in masterful accompaniment. The subsequent recording features Daniel Barenboim as pianist in the Op. 108 Violin Sonata.
