Audiophile HD-Vinyls 96/24 (Decca) Johannes Brahms – The Four Symphonies (Solti)

front-small-boxset
I’ve been listening many times to this set, particularly the 1st Symphony, and my opinion has changed, concerning other great performances of other conductors. Now I am in absolute awe of it. Why has this collection changed my mind? In one word: bass. The low register instruments, especially the basses and cellos, stand strongly in these recordings, and the result is I’m discovering a *lot* of depth to the composition that had escaped me before. Brahms turns out to be a much better composer than other recordings had let me discover before. In certain passages, I focus totally on the low strings, just to see what they’re up to, and I’m richly rewarded…
