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.

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.
