Vladimir Jurowski conducts Brahms Symphonies Nos. 3 & 4

Vladimir Jurowski conducts Brahms Symphonies Nos. 3 & 4

Recorded live at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall, London, on 27 October 2010 (Symphony No. 3) and 28 May 2011 (Symphony No. 4)


Brahms:

Symphony No. 3 in F major, Op. 90

Symphony No. 4 in E minor, Op. 98


LPO Principal Conductor Vladimir Jurowski completes his survey of Brahms’s four symphonies.

His previous disc, of Symphonies Nos. 1 & 2 (February 2010), received great critical acclaim including BBC Music Magazine’s ‘Disc of the Month’ and the recommended version of Symphony No. 2 by BBC Radio 3’s ‘Building a Library’.

Symphonies Nos. 3 & 4 were recorded live in concert at Royal Festival Hall in 2010 and 2011, receiving press reviews including ‘a performance of colossal proportions’ (The Guardian, No. 4).

In the Third, sweeping string melodies and autumnal colours interwoven with his recurring musical motto of ‘free but joyful’ create one of the composer’s most personal works. In the Fourth, Brahms looked back to his idols Bach and Beethoven for inspiration, creating a masterpiece whose extraordinary passacaglia finale – based on a Bach cantata – seems to sum up the composer’s symphonic mastery.

“They are at once modern in their transparency and detailed nuance yet old-fashioned in their relaxed tempi, long, overarching phrasing and use of string portamento...Each approach opens our ears. These LPO performances are true bargains as well as fine performances.” The Observer, 26th January 2014 ***

“The London Philharmonic’s principal conductor marries the best of tradition with the best of modern practice” Financial Times, 25th January 2014

“The expressive power Jurowski brings to both symphonies derives in large measure from the plasticity of his articulation of the musical line. Such plasticity might seem mannered were it not for the strong sense of forward momentum which informs his conducting here.” Gramophone Magazine, March 2014

“this is an outstanding disc, strong in momentum, passionately detailed...Jurowski has the orchestra respond hypersensitively to Brahms’s syncopations and ever-shifting dynamics.” Sunday Times, 9th March 2014

“There are plenty of good things in this new Carmina...Graf's tempos are also excellent - he draws a wider range of moods and colouration from this piece than most conductors...The choral passages are intelligently prepared and sung...Kennedy's roasted swan is one of the best you'll find.” BBC Music Magazine, July 2014 ****

In an intriguing new concept for Telarc Classics, American conductor John Axelrod explores the music that surrounded the relationship between Johannes Brahms and the woman he loved, Clara Schumann. For this, the first release in the series, the Second and Fourth Symphonies are coupled with lieder by Clara sung by Nicole Cabell and Indra Thomas while Axelrod accompanies on the piano. The symphonies feature Axelrod conducting the Grammy Award-winning Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi.

Conductor John Axelrod believes that each of Brahms’ four symphonies inhabits a completely different, though connected, character. He has also come to the conclusion that the songs of Clara Schumann likewise fall clearly into four similar moods, and that they strongly reflect Clara’s own personality. That being the case, according to Axelrod it is possible to see the four Brahms symphonies as portraits of Clara and the same four different aspects of her character.

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. Recent recordings have included a much-praised disc of music by Berlioz and Ravel 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.

“Symphony No. 2 exudes particular passion and vigour, with lively tempi that occasionally tax the ensemble cohesion...[No. 4] is less elegiac than usual, with a song-like lyricism, often at the expense of Brahms's counterpoint, though with extra awareness of how harmonies are voiced.” Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2013

“The Fourth, with its “dark questing intensity” and orchestral playing that is more heavyweight than heavenly, is paired with songs performed by Indra Thomas.” The Independent, 11th October 2013

Deutsche Radio Philharmonic Saarbrucken Kaiserslautern, Stanislaw Skrowaczewski

Oehms is delighted to release this last recording of Skrowaczewski in time for his 90th birthday in October.

“Skrowaczewski and the Deutsche Radio Philharmonie are perfectly dependable in this sturdy Symphony No. 4, with a dynamic Scherzo.” BBC Music Magazine, January 2014 ***

“Plenty to get excited about here, first and foremost the sheer energy of Skrowaczewski's performance, or most of it...Where others make Brahms sound portly, Skrowaczewski works the fat back into the gleaming muscle...this is a marvellous performance, the crowning glory of Skrowaczewski's Brahms cycle, very well played and recorded.” Gramophone Magazine, February 2014
