Johannes Brahms really admired the symphonies by Beethoven. So much so that he did not finish his first symphony until after his 40th birthday. Three more symphonies followed. The last two of these are given glowing performances here by the Nederlands Filharmonisch Orkest under Jaap van Zweden.

Following the 2011 landmark Beethoven cycle, Riccardo Chailly returns with a recording of the complete Brahms symphonies and orchestral works including the overtures and Haydn Variations.

Rarities include world premiere recordings of two piano intermezzi orchestrated by Paul Klengel (brother of the Gewandhaus’ long-standing principal cellist Julius Klengel); the 9 Liebeslieder waltzes; the original first performance version of the Andante of Symphony No. 1 and the even rarer revised opening of the Fourth Symphony.

Chailly has radically rethought his approach to these works, re-examining the scores and returning to the recorded interpretations of a generation of conductors alive during Brahms’ lifetime, principally Felix Weingartner and one of his Gewandhaus predecessors Bruno Walter.

Read Presto's complete review of this disc here.

“There’s not a whiff of Germanic stodginess, but nor do you feel the music is being unnaturally pushed. Chailly’s tempi, faster than 20th century tradition and always consistent within themselves, bring out the “classical” in Brahms, and the Leipzigers’ performances – wonderfully lithe as well as meltingly lyrical – are a tonic.” Financial Times, 26th October 2013 *****

“dynamic and dramatic readings, faithful to Brahms's intentions. Powerfully conceived, they are rhythmically alert, without an ounce of undue sentiment and never for an instant losing sight of the scores' rock-solid architecture. The Gewandhaus players reward him with magnificent playing, alert and sumptuously rich in sound.” BBC Music Magazine, December 2013 *****

“Chailly achieves a refreshing clarity and vividness...Sometimes, I feel, clarity is achieved at the cost of lightening the bass too much. All in all, though, these are richly stimulating performances.” Sunday Times, 17th November 2013

“the overriding impression I got from these performances was of Chailly wanting to blow away the cobwebs, to set aside tradition and to come up with something that sounded different.” Presto Classical, 14th October 2013

Brahms: Symphonies Nos. 1-4 (Complete)

Brahms: Symphonies Nos. 1-4 (Complete)


David Zinman celebrated his 75th birthday on July 9, 2011. He will leave the Tonhalle Orchestra in 2014 after nearly 20 years. He has been Chief Conductor and Artistic Director of the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich since 1995.

Under his aegis as Artistic Director, the Orchestra has developed into an outstanding ensemble, celebrated highly successful tours in Europe, the United States and Asia, and recorded numerous CDs.

New York born David Zinman is one of the internationally most recognized conductors of his generation. He frequently conducts the renowned American orchestras in Boston, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, San Francisco and New York; in Europe, he regularly guest conducts the Berlin Philharmonic, the Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam, the London Philharmonia Orchestra, the Munich Philharmonic and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra.

The Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich has recorded for SONY/RCA/ARTE NOVA: Beethoven (complete symphonies, complete concertos), Schumann (complete symphonies), Richard Strauss (complete orchestra works) and Gustav Mahler (complete symphonies on SACD). A project with the complete symphonies by Franz Schubert started in 2011.

The recording of all the Beethoven symphonies was awarded (among others) the German Record Critics’ Prize in 1999 and GRAMMOPHONE “Editor’s Choice” & “Record of the Year 2000”. Sales worldwide of their recording of all Beethoven symphonies with the Tonhalle Orchestra (complete cycle and separate CDs): more than 1,000,000 units.

The Beethoven cycle has been famous because of the unusual and fresh interpretation combining the advantages of period instruments interpretations with the sound qualities of a big modern orchestra. All qualities of the renowned Beethoven cycle can be expected also regarding to the Brahms interpretations.

All Sony Classical recordings have received special praise because of their superb sound quality. (Chris Hazell/Recording Producer & Simon Eadon/Sound Engineer & Editing).

The cycle of the complete Brahms Symphonies (Symphonies 1 – 4) was recorded in April 2010 in the Tonhalle Zurich, a concert hall, that has been inaugurated by Johannes Brahms himself and that is famous because of its superb acoustical qualities.

In recent years, the Tonhalle Orchestra has developed into one of Europe’s leading ensembles. Ground-breaking CD recordings of the orchestral works of Richard Strauss and the symphonies of Robert Schumann, for example – and most notably of all the Beethoven symphonies, overtures and solo concertos – paved the way for the orchestra’s rise to prominence.

Wherever the Tonhalle Orchestra performs it is enthusiastically received by audiences and critics alike.

Ever since 1999, when the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich won the German Record Critics’ Prize for its seminal recording of all the Beethoven symphonies, it has been at the centre of worldwide attention. Since then, well over one million CDs have been sold.
