Notes & Reviews:

In Wilhelm Furtwangler's vision, Brahms was like a composer who came from the same lineage of Bach and Handel, an artist who fused in himself an enormous physical presence and extreme sensitivity. Furtwangler considered Brahms as the successor of the ancient German and Dutch Masters such as Van Eyck. To him, the Brahms symphonies depict a savage, fantastic and almost demonic world. Ultimately, Furtwangler considers Brahms as the image of the "classical" German, representing most strikingly German art with all its asperities and its sweetness, its vehemence and its discipline.
