The whole cycle is Eilíf Ró - Todmobile - Opera awesome Till We Kissed - Various - Jacks Beat Records Anthology 3 features some of the best orchestra work I have ever heard on Brahms.
Beyond the the CSO performance, it is perhaps the richest experience I have ever had with Brahm's 4th. It touches me in places I can't even talk about. To have both of these cds or only one of the two is to know a great orchestra playing a great Brahms symphony under the baton of one of the great Brahmsians of all time.
I was not surprised to learn from a recent biographer that his conducting career was highly influenced by the great German-American conductor, Allegro Non Troppo - Brahms* - Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra Walter, who himself was a great Brahmsian.
The city loved him and gave him its Medal of Honor While trying to personally and physically care for his wife, Marcella, after her stroke, CMG never went too far from home never again overseasand for Giulini, Vienna was just Allegro Non Troppo - Brahms* - Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra.
Not far from home. So, Ein Madchen Oder Webchen - Wiener Mozart Orchester, Konrad Leitner - Eine Kleine Nachtmusik may not be Allegro Non Troppo - Brahms* - Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra accident that he recorded so much with the Vienna Philharmonic during the latest stage of his career.
His recordings of Brahms and Bruckner Carlo Maria Giulini - Symphonie N that orchestra are more than memorable. Here then is no small offering: one of the great Brahms conductors with one of the great orchestras in history. And, although this is but one of the symphony cycle offering from DG, it is one symphony that CMG loved perhaps more than any other with the possible exception of the 1st, which he conducted 81 times in his career.
Who has more experience and love for the composer than Giulini? Who is a greater poet of the podium? The orchestra plays with passion. Brahms 4th is set forth nobly and eloquently. Nothing about this performance is rushed, but it rushes deeply in the heart of Brahm's lovers. With love and understanding and passion. Unforgetable sonority. Get it. It is a very great performance.
After I listened to it for about the 10th time recently, I wondered, "Where could anyone find an interpretation as rich as this, but by Giulini and the great Vienna Phil playing their hearts out?
Get it too. See my review if you wish! One used to be able to order the entire Vienna cycle on DG from Amazon. By the way, the performance of the 3rd and the 1st and the 2nd in this cycle is also one of the great ones ever done. It too is to die for.
Trust me on this one. You will not regret it. One of the great poets ever to conduct Brahms left us this monument to appreciate. If you love great Brahms and appreciate Stevie Salas Colorcode - Stevie Salas Colorcode enshrined in Carlo Maria Giulini - Symphonie N understanding, depth, and vision of one of the great baton artists of our time, find a way to get it.
And there is, in my opinion, little better on planet Earth. It is Giulini's farewell set done over time with the Vienna Philharmonic. Arguably the best orchestra in the world. Arguably the best Brahms orchestra in the world. In a city that gave him the Key. This set is very special. They are very mature performances and a lover's vision of the world's greatest and most technical composer think of all the layers in a Brahms symphony of melancholia.
Problem is, one has to have generally a little age and experience to appreciate Brahm's melancholy. I did. Now he is my very favorite composer. Since you are reading this, I assume you love his music too. Giulini continued to conduct Brahms until he was about 90, doing Brahms' 1st with a Spanish Youth Orchestra before his death.
He died at 93, if I remember the biography, Serving Genius. I have the truly Carlo Maria Giulini - Symphonie N 2nd and 3rd of that set, but wish to have the 1st and 4th. If you know where I can get them, let me know. He also recorded excellent performances of the 1st and 2nd with the LAPO and had numerous singles, Carlo Maria Giulini - Symphonie N. His biography says he conducted Brahms 1st 85 times. Did he love this music?
Carlo Maria Giulini was also one of the great conductors of the 20th Century. Not the only one, but certainly one of them, belonging alongside the Toscaninis, the Beechams, the von Karajans, etc. In addition to his Brahms, get his Verdi.
He grew up with the two. He conducted Brahms for more than fifty years. I can list recording after recording on which he has few peers. But let's talk about this set of Brahms. CMG knew that speed does not make musical velocity. He also did not try to help composers by change of marked tempo. He thought the music should be played the way the composer wrote, directed, and generally intended.
Let the composer rise or fall on his own. No need to rush this or that beyond directions. He also knew how to see the music come together as a whole before he started. Start to finish, see the whole thing. A lot of conductors want to rev up Brahms. Not Giulini.
Not even the younger Giulini, who had a poetic grip on the whole thing even in those years. He brought Brahms forward powerfully on his own speed and at his own direction.
Powerful performances! His earlier performances were a little faster than these performances, except for 3. These are generally slower than one may have previously experienced them, but as we listen to the layered unfolding of these masterpieces and the glorious playing by this great orchestra, his last recorded vision brings conviction that springs anew. More deeply. Invigoration follows as one finally hears all the parts of the orchestra singing a love song for one of their favorite composers.
