Notes & Reviews:

"From the outset it is clear that Haitink has a point of view on the Second Symphony, and he has something to say. The work attains more depth than usual, and the whole thing strikes me as melancholy." - Althouse, ARG

The Telegraph, 6th October 2014
This is often called the sunniest of Brahms's four symphonies, but the more you listen to it the more ambiguous and shadowy it seems.

Presto Classical, November 2014
An expressive performance of the Concerto for Violin and Cello from LSO principals Gordan Nikolitch and Tim Hugh. The opening cello statement is rich in tone, and the second movement is full of eloquence, not least from the LSO under Bernard Haitink. It's coupled with an equally splendid performance of the Second Symphony, with some great brass playing at the end of the work.
