||JOHANNES BRAHMS - SYMPHONIES 1-4 - GÜNTER WAND (CONDUCTOR) - NORTH GERMAN RADIO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA - 743218910326 -
Recorded during the early 1980's, this 2-Disc set of all four Brahms symphonies, still remains one of the best accounts of these
impressive works. Günter Wand does not try to change the natural flow of the music by looking for stuff within the music that isn't
there to begin with. He simply lets the music speak for itself, after all it does have beautiful things to express, by his perfect
sense of pacing, momentum, gravitas when implied, and most of all deep lyricism.
