Brahms: Symphony No. 1, Tragic Overture

Bernard Haitink follows his critically acclaimed recording of Brahms's Second Symphony, released on LSO Live in January 2004, with an extraordinary account of Brahms's Symphony No 1.

'a performance of resplendent virtuosity, in which every movement and every gesture, was part of a gripping journey ... [Bernard Haitink] animated each movement with a fiery energy' -- The Guardian

'This was the LSO surpassing even themselves ... inspired by the man on the podium, Bernard Haitink ... this was an exceptional reinvention of the work' -- The Times

'a revelatory re-interpretation' -- The Observer

'a fine, full-blooded performance ... hard to beat' Mail on Sunday

'polished playing and finely judged phrasing made everything fall into place' -- The Independent
