This comprehensive overview of Brahms's orchestral works includes several rarities, among them world premieres of two piano intermezzi orchestrated by Paul Klengel (brother of the Gewandhaus's long-standing principal cellist Julius Klengel) and the original first performance version of the Andante of Symphony No. 1 and the even rarer revised opening of the Fourth Symphony.

Riccardo Chailly

Riccardo Chailly is an Italian conductor. He started his career as an opera conductor and gradually extended his repertoire to encompass symphonic music.
profile & recordings >>

'No. 3 Classical Album of 2013' The Glasgow Herald 

It is a quarter of a century since Chailly recorded the symphonies with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. He has radically rethought his approach to these works, re-examining the scores and returning to the recorded interpretations of a generation of conductors alive during Brahms's lifetime, principally Felix Weingartner and one of his Gewandhaus predecessors, Bruno Walter.

The set includes the Tragic and Academic Festival overtures, Haydn Variations and the three Hungarian Dances orchestrated by Brahms himself.

The Chailly/Gewandhausorchester Beethoven cycle won critical plaudits, including five-star reviews in both the Independent - '... the effect is revelatory ... restoring a dash and brio to works whose revolutionary aspects can once again be clearly glimpsed'

Chailly's Brahms is similarly highly regarded by leading critics, such as this review from Musical Criticism: 'Chailly has worked well to create a style of interpretation which mixes the orchestra's 250-year-old tradition with thoroughly modern, historically informed performance practice. This made for no-nonsense, unstuffy, youthful Brahms.'

The Daily Telegraph reviewing his Prom's performance of the Fourth Symphony wrote: 'Chailly is not a conductor to linger unnecessarily, and he injected the first movement with an uncommon surge and passion ... the finale's fusion of structural grandeur and instrumental detail was conveyed with a masterly sense of direction and purpose.'

Leonidas Kavakos and Riccardo Chailly have also specially recorded the Brahms Violin Concerto in Leipzig for release as a separate album due in October 2013. Kavakos will perform the concerto in all four tour venues in October/November 2013 - Leipzig; London; Paris and Vienna - as well as the Brahms Double Concerto.

The outstanding pedigree of the Chailly/Leipzig partnership in Brahms was last seen in the award-winning set of the piano concertos Chailly recorded with Nelson Freire, the Gramophone 'Recording of the Year' in 2007.

This eagerly anticipated new set celebrates Chailly's recently renewed commitment to the Gewandhaus, an orchestra he has well and truly put back on the musical map, in music that is at the heart of the repertoire for both conductor and ensemble.
