“These well-played performances provoke modified rapture. […] the orchestral execution is quintessentially Brahmsian, with the conductor cultivating a dark, mellifluous, echt-German sonority, in contrast to the usual chrome-plated American style.” International Record Review

Brahms: Symphonies Nos. 1-4 (Complete)


“Concertgebouw standards at the time of Haitink's survey (1970-80) left little to be desired. Perhaps the clarinets don't always overcome reservations about their tone and intonation with the sensitivity of their phrasing; but the horns invariably do, and more often than not Brahms's favourite instrument is a source of joy in these recordings, blazing gloriously at appropriate moments (especially in the Fourth Symphony), or opening up and sustaining huge vistas in the 'dawn' of the First's finale. As to the strings, Haitink's insistence on firmly defined (though never over-emphatic) rhythms from the bass lines up is altogether exceptional; there are countless examples, but most memorable of all is the cellos' and basses' ostinato that sees the Second Symphony's finale in the home straight. What an articulate, integrated Brahms sound this is, too; a case of conductor and engineers easily achieving their aims working in a familiar acoustic. The only movement you may initially find overly sober is the first of the Third Symphony, taken very broadly, though it's determined and imposing, and the launching of the coda is stupendously powerful. There's no better way of getting to know Brahms's orchestral works on a budget.” Gramophone Classical Music Guide, 2010

Concertgebouw Orchestra, William Mengelberg

"One always thinks of Mengelberg as a romantic conductor, so it comes as something of a surprise to find him adjusting his own style to the composer. There is not one manner here, but several, each gauged to the work in question. Was Mengelberg, late in life, responding to modernism by rethinking his relation to the past? These recordings are well worth having." -David Radcliffe in American Record Guide

In his four symphonies, composed between 1876 and 1885, Johannes Brahms proved himself a worthy heir to Beethoven. Grand in their scale, they embody the warmth, nobility and expressivity of the Romantic era. Conductor Kurt Masur – like Brahms – exemplifies the German musical tradition. The respected Kapellmeister of the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, he became Music Director of the New York Philharmonic in 1991, achieving a triumphant fusion of Old World spirit and New World dynamism.

The 5 CD BRAHMS box of Symphonies, Serenades and Overtures, is generally recognized as containing the best modern recordings of his symphonic oeuvre. “Brahms would be the top of my Abbado picks,” critic Martin Kettle has written, “partly but not only because all those years ago he drove into the tragic grandeur of the first movement of the first symphony with a human warmth which very few other conductors have ever achieved.”
