Notes and Editorial Reviews

Far from being conservative, as Johannes Brahms often has been described, his symphonies show the composer as a groundbreaking pioneer far ahead of his time.

Semyon Bychkov's love and affection for the music of Brahms goes back to the beginnings of his conducting career, gathering strength throughout his career. In harmony with the WDR Symphony Orchestra, he shows us the depth and the magnificent density of texture and feeling within these symphonies.
