Review By Jordi Caturla González,Ritmo,May 2013

Estas grabaciones inéditas de la WDR, remasterizadas excelentemente por ICA, muestran a Gilels en la cumbre de su carrera. El Concierto para piano n. 2 de Brahms de 1971 abre el disco con dos primeros movimientos vibrantes y musculosos, a los que pocas pegas pueden ponerse. Rossi dirige meticulosamente a la Orquesta de la Radio de Colonia, mientras que el solista despliega una serie de recursos abrumadores que siempre somete a la idea comunicativa, en comunión absoluta con la escritura brahmsiana. El Andante es pura poesía en manos del ruso, sorprendentemente delicado, y el gracioso Allegretto final pone el broche de oro a una interpretación sensacional en lo pianístico y acertada en la batuta. Aún así, lo mejor
