Elbphilharmonie Hamburg: The First Recording (Brahms: Symphonies Nos. 3 & 4)


Brahms:

Symphony No. 3 in F major, Op. 90

Symphony No. 4 in E minor, Op. 98


With his imagination, his musicological passion for discovery and his uncompromising manner of music-making, Thomas Hengelbrock numbers among the most sought-after conductors of our time and he is musical director of the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra. Concert tours with the orchestra have taken him through Germany, Europe, and Asia. The opening of the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg in January 2017 will mark the beginning of a new era for the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra, formerly the NDR Symphony Orchestra: the ensemble will move in as orchestra in residence at the Elbphilharmonie, making its musical home after a 70-year history. The orchestra’s programme will play a major role in shaping the artistic profile of this spectacular new concert hall. The NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra was founded in 1945, holds its own concert series in Hamburg, Lübeck and Kiel today and plays a leading role at the large festivals in northern Germany. Its international standing is underlined by tours throughout Europe, to North and South America and to Asia.

Brandenburgisches Staatsorchester Frankfurt, Howard Griffiths

Not only did Brahms write his symphonies, he also heard them - and was impressed with conductor Fritz Steinbach. Several decades ago one of his students published Steinbach's interpretive notes, which sparked the profound interest of Howard Griffiths, the director of the Brandenburgisches Staatsorchester Frankfurt / Oder - there hardly is a more authentic way of listening to Brahms' symphonies.

This rendition of the two symphonies is based on a collection of detailed and exciting interpretive suggestions, which Brahms himself knew, heard and liked. They were conceived by Fritz Steinbach, a conductor and contemporary of Brahms, who the composer considered the best performer of his symphonies. Howard Griffiths has thoroughly studied the dossier and has diligently transferred the notes to his score: he plays with the tempo, balances with the dynamics and uses minute shifts of accentuation to great effect. This brings the interpretation very close to Brahms intention, thereby literally presenting the listener with a historically informed performance and simply providing the most authentic way of enjoying Brahms' last two symphonies. A recording of the first two symphonies performed by the Brandenburgisches Staatsorchester Frankfurt under the baton of Howard Griffiths has already been released by Klanglogo in 2015 (KL1513).

“The spirit of romance is certainly present in Griffiths’s readings…[and] the Frankfurt orchestra produces a very agreeable soft-grained legato sound” Gramophone Magazine, August 2016

Valery Gergiev and the London Symphony Orchestra bring to a close their celebrated Brahms’ cycle with the release of Brahms third and fourth Symphonies.

Brahms is often associated with the idea of abstract music, free of literary models or autobiography, but with the third the composer wrote in many ways his most personal symphony.

Composed at a mountain retreat in 1884, about a year after completing the third, Brahms’ architectural musical skill is nowhere more evident than in his fourth and final symphony, employing Baroque contrapuntal techniques and chromatic labyrinths and described by Hans von Bülow as having the feeling of ‘being given a beating by two incredibly intelligent people.’

“Brahms and Gergiev could hardly be described as natural bedfellows but there were moments in the Third Symphony where the illicitness of unnatural bedfellows generated a certain frisson.” Gramophone Magazine, December 2014

Recorded live at Heinz Hall, Pittsburgh

“Marek Janowski's Brahms is refreshingly balanced and free of eccentricities.” BBC Music Magazine, March 2008 ***

“This is music (Symphony No. 3) that refuses to bow to convention and play to the gallery – even to the extent of having all four movements end quietly! It’s notoriously difficult to bring off this work convincingly, yet by negotiating the music’s dramatic contours with complete naturalness, Janowski and his fabulous Pittsburghers create the impression of profound ease and inevitability.” Classic FM Magazine, May 2008 *****
