Germany’s foremost conductor of German Romantic repertoire conducts his legendary Dresdner Staatskapelle in a complete cycle of Brahms symphonies.

Recorded live through the 2012-13 season, this set presents the most coherent rendering of Christian Thielemann’s powerful, dark, layered vision of Brahms.

A counter-weight to the lighter, ‘revisionist’ Chailly cycle on Decca, Thielemann’s version is rooted in the great German Romantic tradition – tragic and elegiac emotion with an epic sense of musical architecture.

DVD Content:
o Thielemann and Pollini’s performance of the ECHO award winning recording of Brahms’ Piano Concerto No.1
o Piano Concerto No.2
o Christian Thielemann’s and Lisa Batiashvilli’s performance of the Brahms’ Violin Concerto

The symphonic set is completed with a pair of favourite Brahms overtures.

Thielemann and his crew made this driving version [of the 4th Symphony] cohere and even gave one of the most convincing, well-delineated, Andante moderato movements imaginable.” - Chicago Sun-Times
