BRAHMS, J.: Symphonies Nos. 2 and 3 (Bavarian Radio Symphony, Jansons)
Review By MC118938,May 2011

The two Brahms Symphonies conducted by Jansons are simply stunning. I had no doubt due to the coupled Jansons - Bavarian Radio that we have become accustomed to high-level performances. Strong tension in the final two movements in particular both the second and third. Very nice especially the crescendo of the finale of the second where there is a risk of confusion in the sound here is rather clean. Another detail impressed me in the last movement of the third: the rise of bullying cellos in the middle of the movement while shooting, as the flames that tend to fire all the implant into the blazing orchestral crescendo actually concluded by the "choir" of brass to crystal clear sound. There are other very beautiful moments... a reference recording.
