Notes and Editorial Reviews

Following the ‘Gramophone Record of the Year’ award-winning set of the Brahms Symphonies, Riccardo Chailly turns his “rare talent for transforming music ripe for rediscovery” to Brahms’s Serenades. This exquisite recording renews these unjustly neglected works and marks their first Decca recording since 1968. Part of a wider Brahms project by Chailly and his Leipzig orchestra, these works emerge not just as precursors of the symphonies but powerful and individual works in their own right.
