Notes & Reviews:

"Hearing these loosely constructed, generously tuneful pieces, we can only wonder at the effort Brahms must have made to curb his purely lyrical impulses and discipline his musical thought in such a way as to demonstrate his worthiness as symphonic heir to Beethoven. Mackerras and his players clearly delight in the catchy tunes and colorful scoring, and he leads performances that, while clearly "Romantic" in their freedom of tempo, are scaled to emphasize the music's classical antecedents. Toss in Telarc's outstanding sonics, and the result is simply irresistible." -ClassicsToday (10/10)
