Notes and Editorial Reviews
This new album is the first in a series of four releases, which will include all four of Brahms’ symphonies and four chosen symphonies from Leif Segerstam’s impressive oeuvre of almost 300 symphonies. Leif Segerstam is also the featured conductor and pianist for this recording, performing alongside the Turku Philharmonic Orchestra. Segerstam has held his position as chief conductor of Turku Philharmonic since 2012. “The flow must always go on in our own lifescore, and if Music is the personal port to some inexplicable dimension… then the most pollutive blow from the milky ways could be the identification of yourself taking part in the opening procession of Brahms’ First Symphony!” (Leif Segerstam)
