A sophisticated and elegant execution of the Brahms Violin Concerto, as one would expect from arguably the greatest soviet violinist of the 20th century. This concerto is well suited to Leonid Kogan’s style of violinism, it feels effortless yet with a direct and lethally precise delivery only achievable by the most advanced technicians. Emotional content is not lacking either in this masterful performance – beauty with intensity.

Originally completed in 1824 and premiered in Vienna the same year,
the Ninth Symphony is considered as one of Beethoven’s greatest works.
Furthermore it is recognised as one of the greatest compositions in
western musical history.
The 1951 Bayreuth performance is not without flaw (the first horn
being out of tune), but despite this it is a performance of
incomparable depth, energy and breadth. A melting pot of tradition and
ideals guided by Furtwängler’s vision and deep spiritual connection to
the work and composer – it is a truly unique journey.
