Brahms in Melbourne
Melbourne Symphony / Sir Andrew Davis
For top-class Brahms, you won’t do better than Vadim Gluzman, performing the formidable Violin Concerto splendidly in this latest MSO program.
Gluzman demonstrated impeccable balance between power and delicacy in the Brahms, adroitly following its oscillations between raging intensity and faraway lyricism.
Gluzman is the perfect balance between confident showman and reserved perfectionist, radiating both a quiet, sincere charisma and a wonderfully unselfconscious reverence for the music.
