Renaud Capucon, the leading French violinist of his generation, joins the British conductor Daniel Harding and the august Wiener Philharmoniker for a landmark concerto of the German repertoire. The expansive Brahms concerto, first performed in 1878 by Joseph Joachim, is a peak of the composers glowingly warm Romanticism. Capucon has pronounced Brahms one of his favorite composers, for his serenity and the sense of resurrection that he conveys. This recording was originally released in CD in 2012 coupled with the Berg Violin Concerto.
