Brahms Piano Concerto No. 2/Sibelius Symphony No. 5 – Berlin Philharmonie, Germany

7 May 2013
Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, Arcadi Volodos

“Steeped in tradition, the Oslo Philharmonic has nevertheless seen its sound evolve in Saraste’s hands, a sound which seemed compact, never dry, perhaps even radiating that Nordic austerity, which sits naturally with Brahms so well.”

“Jukka-Pekka Saraste conducts the music of his Finnish compatriot with great intensity. And gives the enthralled audience two encores as well.”
