  • This DVD brings together two of the major musical figures of the 20th-century, Wilhelm Backhaus and Karl Böhm

  • Backhaus was regarded by many as the greatest interpreter of Beethoven

  • Backhaus and Böhm were friends of nearly forty years' standing and collaborated in concertos by both these composers on many occasions

  • The present performance was among their last. Two years later, Backhaus died, aged 85, after a career of some seventy years

  • Both men were technicians of exceptional brilliance

  • Böhm's command of orchestral ensemble, sonority, textural clarity and subtlety of rhythm was legendary. His musicianship was impeccable, his authority unquestioned

  • A marvellous testament to great Brahms conducting!
