In this 1966 recording (winner of the 1966 Grand Prix Du Disque), Argentine pianist Bruno-Leonardo Gelber (1941) performs the Brahms Piano Concerto in D minor, Op. 15. Franz Paul Decker (1923) leads the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra. This recording -- made when Gelber was 25 years old -- was distributed on cassette tape in 1976 on the Connisseur Society label, serial number CS 2102. With the exception of those of Brahms (which show him when he was about 25 or 26 years old) and the fragments from the orchestral score, as well as the 1966 magazine story (at 36:25) on the Grand Prix Du Disque for this LP, all images used to create this video came from the cassette (5:18, 36:15) and the cassette cover (5:08). This video concludes with an image of Brahms' grave at the Zentralfriedhof in Vienna (47:45).

Movement 1: Maestoso
Movement 2: Adagio (21:53)
Movement 3: Rondo (allegro non troppo) (36:02)

Earlier this year I uploaded this performance in 7 segments. The relaxation by YouTube of its time constraints now permits me to present this remarkable performance in its entirety.
