Gramophone’s EDITOR’s CHOICE in JANUARY 2020

This is a bold Brahms D minor with immense character, audacious and courageous. It is also perhaps the most sensitive and subtle reading of the score in recent memory. 

The four Op 10 Ballades round out the recording, each imbued with a distinct character  […]  Lars Vogt has always been a pianist of remarkable gifts but over the years his artistry has risen in stature in ways one scarcely could have imagined. I suspect that this is Brahms you will treasure in the long term and I urge you not to miss it.
