Igor Levit performs one of the most difficult piano concertos of the Romantic period – and one of the most beautiful. "I don’t get a moment of rest!" says the pianist. Christian Thielemann conducts the Wiener Philharmoniker, the concerto is Johannes Brahms's Second. In this work, the North German composer sounds sweet and mellow for a change, almost Austrian, as if he were on an alpine pasture with a flower in his lips.
