Simon Rattle conducts Brahms’s Symphonies No. 3 and 4

The cycle of the complete Brahms symphonies conducted by Simon Rattle was the most important project of the Berliner Philharmoniker during the 2008/2009 season. Two of these works were heard at the concert recorded here: the Third and Fourth Symphonies. Die Welt praised the performance as the “ecstatic apotheosis of what modern orchestral playing, fast reactions and concise interpretation can elicit from a work that has long been a classic”.
