Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra is conducted by Kurt Masur in their first-ever recording of all four Brahms symphonies, from the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall in 1991. Kurt Masur also gives an in-depth interview prior to each symphony, both thought-provoking and stimulating, in which he talks about his family background and his long association with this world-famous orchestra, having studied, like many members of the orchestra, at the Leipzig Conservatoire. This program contains 2 DVDs.
