    This performance is part of the doctoral research of Johannes Leertouwer.
    The subject is the application of what is known about performance
    practice in Brahms's time. According to Leertouwer, much is known about
    that, but very little of it is applied in performances. In total, four performances were/are planned. This is the second; on the posting page
    you will find a link to the first.
    The three main features of performance practice in Brahms's time are: 1)
    a sparing use of vibrato, as an ornament; 2) flexibility of tempo; 3) the
    use of portamento: the sliding from one note to the next.
    The performance of the double concerto is nothing less than a revelation. Shunske Sato and Pieter Wispelwey are brilliant.
