Symphony 1 - Brahms ("compared" to Beethoven's "Tenth" ! [sic] by von Bulow , tape - CHV 2004)

£3.99

Product description

(featuring the West German Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Ludwig Dorner)

The ever-self-doubting Johannes Brahms (1833-97) had long-steeled his nerve, when it came to composing Chamber music, but when it came to creating a symphony, his habitual worrying haunted him for over twenty years of his early creative life.

Thus, it took Brahms more than fifteen years to create his First Symphony, and even at the premiere, he was wracked with nerves, doubting that anyone would even appreciate the work, never mind love it ...

He needn't have worried ; even the great Hans von Bulow (himself a superb composer, pianist and conductor, just like Brahms ...) said of Brahms' Symphony No.1 "as if it were Ludwig van Beethoven's Tenth!".
Side One : Symphony No.1 in C minor Op.68, by Brahms (beginning) :-
i) Un poco sostenuto - Allegro ii) Andante sostenuto.
Side Two : Symphony 1 (conclusion) :-
iii) Un poco sostenuto allegretto iv) Adagio - piu andante - allegro non troppo.
