MONO • HISTORICAL RECORDINGS FROM 1942-1952

Wilhelm Furtwängler saw “a wild, fantastic and even demonic universe” in the symphonies of Brahms. “Music is not something that is invented and constructed,” he wrote, “but something that grows, emerging … directly from the hands of nature.”

With organic development so crucial to Brahms’ music, his symphonies were destined for a prominent place in Furtwängler’s repertoire. Among the other works in this collection are the Violin Concerto with Yehudi Menuhin, and the Piano Concerto No. 2 with Edwin Fischer, both recognised as landmark interpretations.
