PERFORMER: Johannes Brahms Claudio Abbado Marjana Lipovšek Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. More from this artist.
One of Claudio Abbado's crowning achievements in Berlin was his Brahms Symphonies cycle on DG (he also recorded Brahms VC and Double Concerto). Granted, this was recorded around the time he was appointed as the music director of the Berlin Philharmonie, when the honeymoon between the conductor and the orchestra was at its peak. Indeed, Abbado elicits milky and sweetened sound from BPO in all four symphonies putting every instrumentalist in the crystal clear sonic convas. Marjana Lipovsek has a brighter, less rounded tone than some favoured soloists but, judged in the context of this reading, her voice seems to be appropriate. This is one of the most successful readings of these two works for quite a long time. it also has the benefit of excellent playing and recording both of which do Brahms proud.
