Bernard Haitink - Brahms: Symphony No. 3


Brahms:

Symphony No. 3 in F major, Op. 90

Conducting Workshops at the Royal College of Music


Bernard Haitink is one the most celebrated conductors of our time. For more than 25 years he was at the helm of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra as its music director. In addition, he has been music director of the Dresden Staatskapelle, the Royal Opera Covent Garden, Glyndebourne Festival Opera, and the London Philharmonic. With an international conducting career spanning more than five decades he has conducted most of the leading orchestras of the world.

Here, Bernard Haitink works with six student conductors and the orchestra of the Royal College of Music in London on all four movements of Brahms' Symphony No 3, one of the composer's most daring and elusive works. Haitink imparts not only his profound insight into the symphony, but also shares with the students a lifetime's experience of conducting. This three-hour masterclass will inspire and inform not only aspiring conductors but music lovers and musicians in general.

Symphony No. 3 in F major, Op. 90

recorded by BBC Radio 3, 7 April 1983


Conductor Klaus Tennstedt enjoyed a close and enduring relationship with the London Philharmonic Orchestra that resulted in his appointment as the Orchestra’s Principal Conductor and Music Director in 1983, later becoming its Conductor Laureate. Renowned for his interpretations of the German Romantic repertoire, Tennstedt once said he loved the LPO so much because ‘it is a romantic orchestra’.

Here he conducts the Orchestra in live concert performances of Brahms’s Symphonies Nos. 1 & 3. This Symphony No. 1 performance in 1992 was one of the conductor’s last concerts with the LPO. As the conductor struggled with illness, every one of his late concerts in London became an event, as if any could be his last, and the acute atmosphere of his last London appearances shines through in this performance.

“No conductor ever achieved a wider range of dynamics, more hushed pianissimos. The detail in the first movement of Brahms 1 is wonderful, yet at the same time the music is realised in a single tragic arc.” Sunday Times, 11th November 2012

“These are certainly deeply sympathetic Brahms performances. The account of the Third Symphony in particular is quite wonderful, the finest live account to be preserved on disc since Furtwangler's celebrated 1949 Berlin performance...Make no mistake, this is Brahms-conducting of rare moment and pedigree.” Gramophone Magazine, February 2013

“The sense of purpose with which Tennstedt approaches the first movement is very pleasing...Nowhere is the large scale of the interpretation more apparent than in the introductions to the first and last movements, both of which are imposingly rhetorical..if you don’t have Tennstedt’s live performances of these symphonies in your collection then acquiring them will offer two opportunities to hear a great conductor in action.” MusicWeb International, January 2013

“the 1992 LPO version combines energy with polish; this sounds like a great occasion that elicited exceptional concentration from performers and audience alike. The only disappointment comes in the coda of the finale, which strikes me as unnecessarily stodgy” BBC Music Magazine, May 2013 ****

Brahms: Symphonies Nos. 1-4 (Complete)


There are many who believe that, if Beethoven wrote the Old Testament of the symphonic literature, then Brahms was the author of the New. Brahms certainly had a rich and complex relationship with tradition and novelty. ‘You don’t know what it’s like, having that giant at my heels,’ he ruefully remarked to one who was waiting, as was much of musical Europe at the time, for a First Symphony from a man whom Schumann had already proclaimed as Beethoven’s heir.

In fact the giant referred to by Brahms may indeed have been Schumann and not Beethoven, for the First Symphony contains an embedded thematic narrative that links both composers through Schumann’s wife Clara, and the complex relationship between the three was never to be satisfactorily resolved. Brahms conceived a somewhat desperate passion later in life for one of the Schumann children, and it may be said of him more truly than most creative artists that he subsumed many of his most private and turbulent feelings within his own work.

Turbulence is certainly a keynote of these marvellous, dramatic recordings. Antal Doráti may be better known to us now as a Haydn and Stravinsky specialist, or at least pioneer, but the rhythmic spring he insisted upon is at least as germane to symphonies that have often laboured under heavier weights. Indeed his light-footed tempi and incisive articulation are among the reasons why this set, unusually, fits on two CDs.

“This is about the most extrovert performance of Brahms’s First that I have ever heard. Even I, a devotee of Klemperer and Walter, find the blood stirred by Dorati’s crisp, clean-cut attack and guiltily enjoy some of the outrageously fast speeds.” Gramophone Magazine, April 1961
