Brahms Symphonies Nos 1 3 Tennstedt London Philharmonic Orchestra 2Cds

BRAHMS

Symphony No. 1

Symphony No. 3

London Philharmonic Orchestra / Klaus Tennstedt

Recorded at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall, London.

Symphony No. 1 recorded 14 October 1992.

Symphony No. 3 recorded by BBC Radio 3, 7 April 1983.

Conductor Klaus Tennstedt enjoyed a close and enduring relationship with the London Philharmonic Orchestra that resulted in his appointment as the Orchestra’s Principal Conductor and Music Director in 1983, later becoming its Conductor Laureate. Renowned for his interpretations of the German Romantic repertoire, Tennstedt once said he loved the LPO so much because ‘it is a romantic orchestra’.

Here he conducts the Orchestra in live concert performances of Brahms’s Symphonies Nos. 1 & 3. This Symphony No. 1 performance in 1992 was one of the conductor’s last concerts with the LPO. As the conductor struggled with illness, every one of his late concerts in London became an event, as if any could be his last, and the acute atmosphere of his last London appearances shines through in this performance.

Reviews for the concert performances:

‘This was a splendid account of the symphony, majestic, tumultous, every phrase alive with feeling. Under Tennstedt the London Philharmonic is shown to be a first-rate Brahms orchestra.’ Richard Fairman, Financial Times, 14 Oct 1992

‘When the symphony finally arrived home in joyous excitement, the sense of occasion was overwhelming.’ Anthony Payne, The Independent, 14 Oct 1992
