About

Pierre Monteux recorded Brahms’s Second Symphony several times - in addition to the present recording for Decca with the Vienna Philharmonic, there are versions with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra and the London Symphony Orchestra.

He recorded the Variations on a Theme by Haydn just once, in 1958, with the London Symphony Orchestra.

Monteux gives a fresh, relaxed account of the Second with the Vienna Philharmonic and the spaciousness of his reading is enhanced by the fact that he observes the first movement exposition repeat. […] Recommended.’ - Gramophone, July 1971

Monteux’s account of the [Haydn Variations] is hugely enjoyable and the natural, unforced yet splendidly disciplined orchestral playing makes this record highly desirable’ - Gramophone, June 1971
