Notes & Reviews:

LPO Principal Conductor Vladimir Jurowski completes his survey of Brahms's four symphonies. Symphonies Nos. 3 & 4 were recorded live in concert at Royal Festival Hall in 2010 and 2011 respectively. Brahms Third Symphony is one of the composer's most personal works. The Fourth Symphony's extraordinary passacaglia finale - based on a Bach cantata - seems to sum up the composer's symphonic mastery. 'a performance of colossal proportions' (The Guardian, No. 4).

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
The Third has a lot of surge in every movement and an agreeable amount of rhetoric to point out the details of Brahms's landscapes. The Fourth is more of the same, and you'll like it if you want a no-holds-barred approach. The scherzo is very fast, and Jurowski pushes through the outer movements. These are exciting performances, certainly more enjoyable than his First and Second. Sonics are vivid.
