Brahms: Symphony No. 2, Double Concerto

Posted by i kadek Mardika on Monday, March 19, 2012


After struggling to complete his first symphony, Brahms composed his Symphony No 2 with ease and the work overflows with a relaxed, pastoral beauty. His Double Concerto is laced with a fiery gypsy passion and pitches violin and cello against orchestra.

'the finale heaves with manic elation ... The Double Concerto is equally intense. [Gordan Nikolitch and Tim Hugh] are infintely expressive, never showily flamboyant. They are very much the equal of starrier pairings who have recorded the work before' --The Times

'a classic recording' --The Independent
