The award winning album , now available on bluray audio.

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.

John Axelrod returns to the podium and the piano to complete his much admired cycle of Brahms symphonies and Clara Schumann songs - joined for this volume by celebrated soprano Dame Felicity Lott and distinguished Lieder specialist Wolfgang Holzmair.

This is the second and final volume of ‘Brahms Beloved’, in which conductor John Axelrod pairs the Brahms Symphonies (in this set, the First and the Third) with songs by his muse, Clara Schumann. Volume 1 stimulated healthy debate among Brahmsians as to how deeply enmeshed the presence of Clara is in the songs of the man who always had a love for her, and this volume takes the discussion further with an insightful booklet essay by Jan Swafford, author of a standard-reference Brahms biography. Keeping with the idea of using different voice-types for each ‘set’ of Clara’s songs, the better to explore the notion of different sides of their composer’s character, this volume introduces the two final “Claras,” the great Lieder singers Dame Felicity Lott and Wolfgang Holzmair (for the more masculine side of Clara). The orchestra is again the Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi, of which John Axelrod is Principal Conductor, and Axelrod once more does double duty as conductor and pianist.

John Axelrod is Principal Conductor of the Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi, as well as Music Director of the Orchestre National des Pays et des Loire. A former pupil of Leonard Bernstein, he is one of today’s most in-demand conductors. Recordings he has made include a much-praised Berlioz and Ravel disc with Veronique Gens and the ONPL for Ondine Classics, the album American Serenade also with the ONPL and violinist Rachel Kolly d’Alba for Warner Classics, and Gorecki’s Third Symphony with the Danish National Symphony Orchestra for Sony Classical.

Evgeny Svetlanov conducts Debussy & Brahms

Evgeny Svetlanov conducts Debussy & Brahms

Royal Festival Hall, London, 17 April 1975


Brahms:

Symphony No. 3 in F major, Op. 90

Chausson:

Le temps des lilas

Bonus

Janet Baker (mezzo-soprano)

Debussy:

La Mer


Evgeny Svetlanov (1928–2002) began his conducting careeer in 1953 at the Bolshoi Theatre, becoming chief conductor in 1962. In 1965 he was appointed chief conductor of the USSR State Symphony Orchestra, where he remained until his death. Valery Gergiev described the USSR State Symphony as an ‘orchestra with a voice’ under Svetlanov. From 1970 onwards, Svetlanov started to conduct in the West and with the advent of perestroika in the late 1980s, many musicians including Svetlanov took up positions in Europe. He was a regular guest conductor in the UK – with the LSO (becoming prinicipal guest in 1979), the Philharmonia and the BBCSO – as well as in the Netherlands, France and Japan.

Svetlanov’s repertoire was large (including his discography). In addition to the full range of Russian works, he was a masterly conductor of non-Russian composers of the late-Romantic era including Bruckner, Elgar and Mahler, as well as Debussy and Brahms as demonstrated here. He died in 2002 shortly after conducting the BBCSO in a memorable account of Rachmaninov’s cantata The Bells (available on ICAC5069).

The performances of the Brahms and Debussy are recorded in brilliant stereo and have never been issued before.

ICA Classics have already released three CDs of Svetlanov in Russian music, conducting works by Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, Prokofiev, Rachmaninov and Shostakovich. We now hear him in Brahms and Debussy, two composers whose works he performed quite regularly during his career. He recorded the complete Brahms Symphonies in Russia with Melodiya. The Brahms is both powerful and mellifluous, superbly played by the LSO, while the Debussy has tension from the start, combining colour, sensitivity and transparency. David Nice states in his booklet notes ‘Svetlanov reminds us that “impressionism” is quite the wrong term for what develops as pure expressionism. As this recording demonstrates, no conductor ever made a more Dionysian orgy out of the final charge to the stampeding finish.’

The bonus consists of Janet Baker singing the final song from Chausson’s Poème de l’amour et de la mer; ‘La Mort de l’amour – Le Temps des lilas’. This comes from the same concert and has been previously issued. In a review of this performance, The Times wrote of Janet Baker’s ‘lovely tone throughout a wide range and an equally beautiful shapeliness and continuity of line’. Svetlanov was praised for achieving a refined orchestral blend and balance. The performance was said to have held ‘a large audience spellbound’.

“His Brahms Third Symphony is idiomatic in a traditional German way, while his Debussy La Mer has a thrilling boldness that does not preclude many subtleties. Best of all is Janet Baker singing Chausson’s Poème de l’amour et de la mer.” Financial Times, 22nd February 2014 ****

“The LSO weren't at their absolute sturdiest in the Brahms performance, which nonetheless has distinctive qualities...Baker has a bit of brittleness in her voice, giving it all the more character amid her typically shamanistic relationship with the words and a sense of abandon not often heard in her studio recordings.” Gramophone Magazine, May 2014

Brahms: Symphonies Nos. 1 & 3

Recorded at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall, London.


Brahms:

Symphony No. 1 in C minor, Op. 68

recorded 14 October 1992

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 ****
