Daniel Barenboim has recorded the Brahms piano concertos on several previous occasions – and always with partners who have meant a lot to him. His latest recording was taken from performances in Berlin in September 2014. His partner was conductor Gustavo Dudamel. Barenboim said of their collaboration, "Whenever I had to play myself, I was able to count on him completely. And when I didn't have to play, it was a joy to see how well he works with the orchestra."

The Brahms: Piano Concerto No 2 in B-flat major, Op 83: I, Allegro non troppo (18:41) from Brahms: Piano Concertos by Daniel Barenboim, piano; Berlin Staatskapelle / Gustavo Dudamel on Deutsche Grammophon is a WFMT: Chicago 'New Release Of the Week.'
