Notes & Reviews:

"The most important aspects of his approach to the Symphony No. 4 are his fluidity in phrasing and his intelligent use of rubato, for this performance really feels flexible and spontaneous, in the grand Romantic tradition of playing Brahms with elasticity of phrasing, generous pacing, and great surges of emotion. This is not a meticulous and tidy Brahms to suit academic or analytical tastes, but a deeply felt, committed, and ardent Brahms, and Eschenbach never holds back when the music swells and frequently accelerates when the music reaches points of maximum intensity... this CD sounds almost as clear as a studio session." -All Music Guide
