Notes & Reviews:

In his four symphonies, composed between 1876 and 1885, Johannes Brahms proved himself a worthy heir to Beethoven. Grand in their scale, the works embody the warmth, nobility and expressivity of the Romantic era. Conductor Kurt Masur - like Brahms - exemplifies the German musical tradition. The respected Kapellmeister of the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, he became music director of the New York Philharmonic in 1991, achieving a triumphant fusion of Old World spirit and New World dynamism.
