Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...wonderful stuff...with a clearly attentive Chicago Symphony. It's an excellent performance, not quite as wild as his latest NDR release, but rock-solid in the first movement and very exciting in the finale." -- David Hurwitz, ClassicsToday.com [reviewing RCA 84588] "...wonderful stuff...with a clearly attentive Chicago Symphony.

 a recording of a great occasion November 20, 2012 By Jonathan H. (Culpeper, VA) See All My Reviews "Basically all of Wand's Brahms 1st recordings (including the DVD) have something to offer the listener. I think the comparison is much more interesting and subtle than Hurwitz thinks (review above). The speeds are basically the same. For anyone who has heard conductor and orchestra separately will find this combination worth its value. This recording was made after extended rehearsals requested by Wand, and it shows in the details. Adolph Herseth, the principal trumpet at the time of this recording, once commented that one of his favorite solo passages, is in the 4th movement, after the famous horn solo - the trumpet plays three notes. Notice how beautiful those three notes are played. Those are the kinds of things that could make other recordings of this work less satisfying. The other versions with NDR symphony are also indispensable." Report Abuse
