Notes & Reviews:

Germany's foremost conductor of German Romantic repertoire conducts his legendary Dresdner Staatskapelle in a complete cycle of Brahms symphonies.

Recorded live through the 2012-13 season, this set presents the most coherent rendering of Thielemann's powerful, dark, layered vision of Brahms.

A counter-weight to the lighter, 'revisionist' Chailly cycle on Decca, Thielemann's version is rooted in the great German Romantic tradition - tragic and elegiac emotion with an epic sense of musical architecture.

Chicago Sun-Times
Thielemann and his crew made this driving version [of the 4th Symphony] cohere and even gave one of the most convincing, well-delineated, Andante moderato movements imaginable.
