“Zehetmair’s is a warm and thoroughly musical account: his timbre is sweet and both he and Dohnanyi, who accompanies sympathetically, offer a natural response to Brahmsian lyricism. The Cleveland Orchestra’s playing is beyond criticism and the sound balance is impressively natural.” Penguin Guide

“Thielemann and his crew made this driving version [of the 4th Symphony] cohere and even gave one of the most convincing, well-delineated, Andante moderato movements imaginable.” (Chicago Sun-Times)

Germany’s foremost conductor of German Romantic repertoire conducts his legendary Dresdner Staatskapelle in a complete cycle of Brahms symphonies

Recorded live through the 2012-13 season, this set presents the most coherent rendering of Thielemann’s powerful, dark, layered vision of Brahms.

A counter-weight to the lighter, ‘revisionist’ Chailly cycle on Decca, Thielemann’s version is rooted in the great German Romantic tradition – tragic and elegiac emotion with an epic sense of musical architecture.

Content of the DVD:

Thielemann and Pollini’s performance of the ECHO award winning recording of Brahms’ Piano Concerto No. 1.

Piano Concerto No. 2.

Christian Thielemann’s and Lisa Batiashvilli’s performance of the Brahms’ Violin Concerto.

The symphonic set is completed with a pair of favourite Brahms overtures

“The catalogue is full of Brahms symphony cycles but these Dohnányi readings are consistent and very rewarding and, as such, are competitive. This set is well worth considering, especially since the price is advantageous.” MusicWeb International, June 2012

For a long time Johannes Brahms was considered the epitome of conservatism who, contrary to the disciples of Wagner and Liszt, fell back on old forms which allegedly had no power any more.

Indeed, Brahms was an expert on music of the past, going back to the polyphonic composers of the 16th century. He made use of old patterns such as the variation and the interrelated passacaglia.

This set would seem to be self-recommending: a composer, conductor and orchestra perfectly at one – and yet these late recordings of the Italian maestro have never before been gathered in one set.

There are, of course, other recordings of Giulini conducting Brahms, and with other fine orchestras. But the glow of the Vienna Philharmonic, especially in their own hall of the Musikverein, lends this always ambivalent music an additional richness without the burden of (German?) weightiness that can sometimes encumber Brahms. Giulini’s tempi by this stage in his life were steady, to be sure, but animated from within, just as his own interpretative experience was shaped by playing viola under the great conductors of a former generation in Rome’s Augusteo Orchestra.

If the Four Symphonies have their own personalities, ranging from the exuberance of the First to the brooding of the Fourth, then Giulini fills out such facile summaries with the fullest possible sense of these works as human dramas, sun and shade from bar to bar, in which the middle two symphonies must rank among his greatest achievements on record.

Includes an appreciation of Giulini in Brahms by the writer Richard Osborne.
