Brahms: Violin Concerto; Double Concerto

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Leonard
Is violinist Julia Fischer in the same league as David Oistrakh in her recording of Brahms' "Violin Concerto"? Are Fischer and cellist Daniel Müller-Schott in the same league as Oistrakh and Mstislav Rostropovich in their recording of Brahms' "Double Concerto"? No: Oistrakh and Rostropovich are playing big, muscular, and heroic music while Fischer and Müller-Schott are playing intimate, sensuous, and lyrical music. Fischer's tone is lovely, her technique is impeccable, but best of all his interpretation of the "Violin Concerto" is sweet, smiling, and joy-filled. Müller-Schott's tone is warm, his technique is impressive, but best of all his interpretation of the "Double ...

Is violinist Julia Fischer in the same league as David Oistrakh in her recording of Brahms' "Violin Concerto"? Are Fischer and cellist Daniel Müller-Schott in the same league as Oistrakh and Mstislav Rostropovich in their recording of Brahms' "Double Concerto"? No: Oistrakh and Rostropovich are playing big, muscular, and heroic music while Fischer and Müller-Schott are playing intimate, sensuous, and lyrical music. Fischer's tone is lovely, her technique is impeccable, but best of all his interpretation of the "Violin Concerto" is sweet, smiling, and joy-filled. Müller-Schott's tone is warm, his technique is impressive, but best of all his interpretation of the "Double Concerto" with Fischer sounds like a love duet from an Othello written by a German. Together with the lush and enveloping accompaniment of the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra Amsterdam led by Yakov Kreizberg, Fischer and Müller-Schott turn in performances that aren't in the same league as Oistrakh and Rostropovich -- they're in a wonderfully seductive league of their own. PentaTone's super audio digital sound is rich, full, deep, and just about real.
Gramophone - Edward Greenfield
[August 2007 Disc of the Month] Fischer offers this ideal Brahms coupling in strong and sympathetic readings.... An outstanding disc which stands high on the list of this perfect coupling.
BBC Music Magazine - Erik Levi
The partnership of Julia Fischer and Yakov Kreizberg...really comes into its own in the symphonic proportions of Brahms's Violin Concerto.
Philadelphia Inquirer - David Patrick Stearns
The Brahms Violin Concerto borders on being a signature piece for Fischer, her clean, firm but light melodic lines recalling similar qualities that Jascha Heifetz brought to the piece.
Classic FM Magazine - Emma Baker
[July 2007 Disc of the Month] Fischer and Müller-Schott are extremely well matched and urge each other on to new heights of inspiration and virtuosity in a performance that crackles with excitement. Conductor Yakov Kreizburg guides the Netherlands Philharmonic, which responds wonderfully in an interpretation that’s a true meeting of minds.
Daily Telegraph - Richard Wigmore
From [Fischer's] gritty, imperious first entry to her seraphic playing of the coda, she combines an eager, imaginative response to the moment with an understanding of the music's grand architectural sweep.

The partnership of Julia Fischer and Yakov Kreizberg...really comes into its own in the symphonic proportions of Brahms's Violin Concerto.
