BFO - Brahms Symphony No. 1 - The Times
01 October 2009The Times
All this plus the usual finesse of tone and colour expected from this orchestra and conductor. Gardiner and Rattle's Brahms both have real merit, though neither of them can top the natural sympathy and understanding shown in this outstanding performance. Symphonies two, three and four had better follow.
