Miracles CAN happen! Anne-Sophie Mutter is a great violinist, no doubt about it (and the highest paid classical performer in Germany, according to some sources). Kurt Masur is reliable, but rarely inspired. Well, here's one of those evenings where everything went just right, for this is a Brahms concerto that stands shoulder to shoulder with the great recordings of the past. Mutter plays with her customary scrupulous attention to detail, but also with a more than usual dose of passion and fire, especially in the zippy finale. Masur follows her like a shark on the scent of blood, providing accompaniments that are sharply characterized and rhythmically taut--simply stunning. --David Hurwitz

Canadian pianist Marc-Andre Hamelin is one of the most fascinating and rewarding artists working today. It's fashionable in classical music circles to complain about the fact that all of the great artists are dead, and that no one matches the achievements of generations past. This is nonsense, and Hamelin offers convincing proof. He is without a doubt one of the two or three most technically accomplished players alive. But more than that, he's so thoroughly musical that more often than not you aren't even conscious of his frequently insane virtuosity. Every single one of his records is worth owning, and this complete set of Scriabin sonatas in no exception. If you're a piano fan, you must hear it. --David Hurwitz

Early in the Fantasy, which begins the disc, we realize that this is not going to be the kind of great performance we might have expected from Marc-André Hamelin. Although he plays the difficult piano writing with panache, there are places in the first movement where the left hand echoes the right hand's leading phrases and we simply don't hear them. He dashes through the treacherous march with splendid virtuosity and plays the long slow finale with beautiful tone and phrasing, but the music simply isn't eventful enough. Pianists like Fiorentino, Richter, and Backhaus have shown us what treasures this music holds, and what Hamelin offers simply isn't enough. The Sonata is the best performance on the disc, but even that doesn't have the wildness of spirit that Schumann put into the music. Hamelin's choice of edition for the Études is understandable (he plays Schumann's last version as published, without the additional music Brahms found and added to a critical edition), but again, the pianist doesn't make all the music's points. Not bad performances, but not the best Schumann. --Leslie Gerber

These performances mount the only serious competition as a complete set to the Leon Fleisher/George Szell versions on Sony Classical. Emil Gilels was an extraordinary virtuoso who decided to place his technical wizardry in the service of the most disciplined and demanding classical masterpieces. No piano concertos live up to this description more than the two by Brahms. Himself a pianist, Brahms placed every purely musical stumbling block that he could in front of the soloist--only audiences never notice because there's no gratuitous display at all. A performer who has not mastered these pieces doesn't necessarily miss notes; he or she just bores everyone to tears. Well, Gilels is never dull, and neither is Eugen Jochum, whose spontaneous-sounding yet sensitive accompaniments support his soloist every step of the way. --David Hurwitz
