Brahms:

Symphonies Nos. 1-4 (Complete)

Tragic Overture, Op. 81

Academic Festival Overture, Op. 80

Variations on a theme by Haydn for orchestra, Op. 56a 'St Anthony Variations'


The music of Brahms held an important place in Sir John Barbirolli’s repertoire and these recordings of the symphonies, made with the Vienna Philharmonic in 1966 and 1967, stand as one of the peaks of his discography. Barbirolli’s relationship with this music is rooted in his time as an orchestral cellist, and these performances are notable for their rich, ripe sonorities and expansive warmth.

“…Bernstein speaks eloquently of Brahms's essential duality, of Romantic passion contained and controlled by Classical forms… Bernstein's interpretations, however, clearly verge towards the Romantic side of the coin.” BBC Music Magazine, November 2007 ****

Brahms:

Symphonies Nos. 1-4 (Complete)

Recorded live at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall, London, in 2008 (Symphonies 1 & 2) and 2011 (Symphonies 3 & 4).


A four-LP vinyl box set of Brahms’ complete symphonies conducted by the London Philharmonic Orchestra's Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor Vladimir Jurowski.

These recordings – of live LPO concerts at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall between 2008 and 2011 – have previously been released as two separate LPO label CDs, but are brought together in one package for the first time in this exclusive box set.

The CD release 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’.

The CD release of Symphonies Nos 3 & 4 was also praised in the press, with Gramophone describing the LPO as ‘London’s finest Brahms orchestra’ and The Financial Times writing that Jurowski ‘marries the best of tradition with the best of modern practice’.

A must-have for lovers of Brahms, Jurowski fans and vinyl enthusiasts alike.
