This DVD is part of the Discovering Masterpieces of Classical Music series from EuroArts, and consists of a documentary about the creation and building blocks of the piece itself, as well as a performance of the work by Gil Shaham and the Berliner Philharmoniker w/ Claudio Abbado. The documentary is full of interesting information about Brahms and the special relationship he had with his friend the violinist Joseph Joachim, and features commentary from musicologist Wolfgang Sandberger who runs the Brahms Institute at the Lubeck Academy of Music. It is fascinating, and more than a little bit awe-inspiring, to see Mr. Shaham discuss some of the finer points of the piece, and then jump right into the bars he is talking about and hear that glorious music come out of his violin as if it is effortless. We expect nothing less, but it is still amazing to see. As for the performance itself, it is incredible. Mr. Abbado allows the orchestra to throb and swell and the interaction with Mr. Shaham is just unbelievable. I am extremely envious of those who got to hear this performance live at the Teatro Massimo in Palermo. This is musicianship of the highest order, and the star is the music - an organic, living thing when performed this way. It is incredible. If you like the music of Brahms, and appreciate the artistry of Gil Shaham, then buy this disc! You won't be disappointed. If you are unfamiliar with either of these two, then buy this disc! You'll learn something and see what truly great musicians can do. Highly recommended.
