Brahms’s Piano Concerto No.2 is a masterpiece from his mature period, distinguished by a solid sense of style and gorgeous harmonic structure in taxing the soloist’s technical prowess. An exemplar of late-romantic pianism, it remains a touchstone for musicians at the highest level of accomplishment.
