Bookmark and Share

The first orchestral recording from Berlin's Pierre Boulez Saal, ‘Brahms: The Symphonies' is a four-CD set featuring Boulez's beloved friend and colleague Daniel Barenboim conducting the Berlin Staatskapelle in all four symphonic masterpieces from the great Romantic composer. "Daniel Barenboim no longer needs to assert himself. To my mind, this is virtually an ideal prerequisite for interpreting Brahms's symphonies, along with his vast musical experience, his instinct, and his ability to shape a symphonic process as organic growth, the ongoing emergence of a capacious whole." (Jörg Widmann)
