Notes & Reviews:

Brahms's Third Symphony was written during the summer of 1883 in Wiesbaden in the Taunus Mountains, where Brahms liked to spend his holidays. Brahms made light of his new work when writing to his editor, Fritz Simrock: "You see, it is such a small symphony that it could be achieved within eight days." The Variations on a Theme by Joseph Haydn were composed during the summer of 1873 but previously existed in a version for two pianos (Op. 56b). The theme of the "Haydn Variations" originates from the second movement of a Divertimento for Winds. Today it is doubted that Joseph Haydn was its original composer.
