HD-Vinyl 24/96 (DGG) Johannes Brahms – The 4 Symphonies, Violin Concerto, Variation On A Theme By Haydn, 8 Hungarian Dances (Karajan, Ferras)

front-small-boxset
A marvellous collection of some of Brahms’ major works. The records are in excellent condition, unbelievable after +50 years…and they seem to be genuine 1st pressings although this box is a special edition that came few years later than the single releases.
I grew up with this recording of the Brahms Violin concerto, and It has remained my favorite: warm, dramatic, and thoroughly natural in approach, Ferras and von Karajan have a perfect grasp of this concerto.
While maybe not the greatest interpreter of Brahms, Karajan delivers very well in his recordings of the symphonies. All four symphonies have plenty of power and lyricism. The Berlin Philharmonic is excellent as always. If you like your Brahms in a melancholy mode, lushly recorded and nuanced to the max,(and I do!), these Brahms’ Symphonies are for you. Karajan’s approach to these four Symphonies is evoking a variety of emotions that few other recordings do. It’s a fine experience.
