This release marks the completion of the Brahms symphony cycle with The Pittsburg Symphony Orchestra conducted by Marek Janowski. This series has been warmly applauded. “Classics Today” awarded previous releases in this cycle ‘10 out of 10’ and Classic FM Magazinze awarded the recordings of symphonies 2 & 3 “Disc of the Month”.

“…the Pittsburgh Symphony - increasingly one of the nation's finest - could easily be mistaken for a top German orchestra, like Leipzig or Dresden, in this music. The refulgence of the playing is a constant source of pleasure and any conductor who is as mindful of Brahm's ingenuity, invention and sheer vision as Janowski demands to be heard. The Hungarian Dances... are earthy and sinewy with plenty of surge factor in the lower strings and the requisite cheekiness in the phrasing exemplified by those traditionally tantalising hesitations and stompling downbeats.” Gramophone Magazine, March 2009

“It's been true for many years now that American orchestras have been sounding more middle- European, but the Pittsburgh Symphony could easily be mistaken for a top German orchestra, like Leipzig or Dresden, in this music. Listen to the slow movement of the Fourth Symphony where Marek Janowski really has his players leaning into the harmonic radiance of the writing. All those wondrous transfigurations evolve so naturally and so dreamily that the brawny exuberance of the Scherzo – tough and resilient in Janowski's hands – really does come as an unexpected blast.
Approaches differ greatly with regard to the highly innovative first movement, the whole of which constitutes a development of sorts. So, how soon do the darkening clouds descend? For some they cannot descend soon enough. But here it's as if Janowski is delaying the inevitable right through to the high anxiety of the final pages. He tightens the screw relatively late in the movement. The slow movement then restores some sense of prior well-being and inner calm, as does the still centre of the finale with its tranquil flute and trombone-led chorale variation. The refulgence of the playing is a constant source of pleasure.
The Hungarian Dances come in Brahms and Dvorák's orchestrations, their kinship self-evident.
They are earthy and sinewy with plenty of surge factor in the lower strings and the requisite cheekiness in the phrasing exemplified by those traditionally tantalising hesitations and stomping downbeats.”

Brahms:

Symphony No. 2 in D major, Op. 73

Symphony No. 4 in E minor, Op. 98


“Brahms Symphony No 2...has clarity and detail but lacks grandeur. Christoph von Dohnányi elicits plaintive tone from the opening horns and balances the parts with care. The romantic surges of the Adagio are well measured and the Scherzo has a dainty charm, but in neither movement is there any sense of awe. The strings lack sheen, the oboe warmth. A second CD includes Symphony No 4 but the story is the same – accuracy, expertise but no real fire.” Sunday Times, 24th August 2008 ***

“[These recordings] are typical Dohnanyi accounts, tough-edged, no-nonsense, massive and unsentimental, but just falling short of the real intensity that makes his best work compelling...And though the orchestral playing is consistently outstanding, there is no sense of occasion or elan.” Andrew Clements, The Guardian, 29th August 2008 ***

“An unusual Brahms double but it's the Fourth which counts as the winner.” Gramophone Magazine, November 2008

“These live performances are engrossing beyond the call of duty: Dohnányi puts joy at the centre of the Fourth Symphony and his second penetrates to its core.” Classic FM Magazine *****

“Dohnanyi and his fine team achieve an apt sense of the momentous in these great works.” The Times
