“This strikes me as being an exceptionally fine performance, drawing one deeper into the music at each new hearing. Perlman and Giulini have given us an account of the Concerto which will, I am sure, gratify and move many Brahmsians.” — Gramophone

Heroic, dramatic, reflective and joyous, Brahms’ Violin Concerto — written for the great Joseph Joachim, a close friend of the composer — is a monument of the Romantic repertoire. In a performance of epic sweep, Itzhak Perlman and Carlo Maria Giulini join forces with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and do full justice to the work’s ambitions. More than 40 years after its original release, this album remains an absolute must-have.
