Mastered by Bernie Grundman from the Original Analog Master Tapes & Pressed at RTI! Numbered Deluxe Laminated Gatefold Jackets! Only 2500 Numbered Limited Edition Copies Worldwide!


This 1962 recording of Brahms's massive First Concerto was an instant classic when originally released. Pianist Clifford Curzon, Conductor George Szell and the London Symphony Orchestra unite for a Truly Stunning Performance! Clifford Curzon gets to the heart of the music, capturing the high drama of the symphonic opening movement, and his rapt concentration makes a profound effect in the Adagio, famous for his controversially slow tempo. Conductor George Szell is his equal here, conducting with passion and intensity. The way he screws up the tension in the orchestra's opening statement and then, through judicious rubato and a warming of the string tone, makes the second subject come alive is a mini-lesson in great conducting.

"...this 45 rpm remastering is the last word in presenting the very natural and deep sonics which the original engineers captured, but which could not be fully appreciated with the cartridges and turntables of that day or the CD reissues since then." - John Sunier, www.audaud.com

"Clifford Curzon hated recording in general, and his relations with Szell were fractious at worst and civil at best. Together, however, they made what many consider the finest recorded performance of the Brahms concerto... From the opening bars, this reading grabs your attention. Szell gets the titanic orchestral introduction to rage like no other. ...Curzon proves a match for the orchestral mass, with a magisterial entry and huge singing tone." - Steve Schwartz, classical.net

"This 1962 recording has long been considered one of the very best performances and recordings of the difficult Brahms First Piano Concerto. It is one of the prime examples of the achievements of the Decca engineers of the time in getting lifelike sound, during this Golden Age of analog recording...The rich tone of Curzon's piano is a joy to hear..." - John Sunier, 5 Stars!!, www.audaud.com
