Notes & Reviews:

Following in the footsteps of Klemperer, Tennstedt, and other distinguished EMI artists, Simon Rattle and the Berlin Philharmonic return to the 19th-century Germanic repertoire on which the orchestra's heritage has been based since its formation some 120 years ago, and bring to the label Brahms' most substantial large-scale work. The fifth movement solo is sung on this live recording by German soprano Dorothea Roschmann. Baritone Thomas Quasthoff completes the top-class lineup on this release.

With this latest release on EMI Classics from Sir Simon Rattle and the Berliner Philharmoniker the team returns to the 19th-century Germanic repertoire on which the orchestra's heritage has been based since its formation 125 years ago. Following in the historic footsteps of Klemperer, Celibidache, Tennstedt, Fischer-Dieskau, Schwarzkopf and many other distinguished EMI artists, Simon Rattle brings to the label Brahms's most substantial yet intimate large-scale work.
