'The crowning glory of Bernard Haitink's Brahms cycle.'
BBC Radio 3 CD Review
Bernard Haitink, London Symphony Orchestra
Loaded with German Romanticism and including variations on a Bach cantata, Brahms final symphony is a remarkable example of his mastery of symphonic composition. A rich, warm work that builds on a sense of movement and intensity right up to the final bars. This release also represents the completion of Bernard Haitink's celebrated LSO Live Brahms cycle that has included the symphonies, Double Concerto, Tragic Overture and Serenade No 2.
