Brahms Four Symphonies CD cover

Recorded live at the Royal Festival Hall’s Southbank Centre, the Philharmonia orchestra are led by Christoph von Dohnányi in these captivating live recordings of Brahms Four Symphonies. “These live performances are about subtle shading and unexaggerated, probing thoughtfulness, bringing out the classical rather than the romantic side of Brahms.” – Classic FM Magazine

“… a very sensitive interpreter … the slow movement [of the first symphony] is very lyrical with some effective instrumental dovetailing and plenty of light and shade, and the finale generates an impressive sense of joyous release.”

Gramophone

Christoph von Dohnányi was appointed Honorary Conductor for life in 2008.
