Summary
Definitive performances of five of the great masterpieces of the orchestral repertoire, combined with unmissable documentary introductions. Legendary pianist Martha Argerich brings her unique intensity to Schumann's lyrical Piano concerto, while violinist Gil Shaham dazzles in Brahms, and the greatest German orchestras from the Berliner Philharmoniker to the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig are heard under such illustrious names as Abbado and Chailly
