Info zu Brahms: Symphonies, Overtures & Hungarian Dances

This boxed set brings together Thomas Dausgaard’s and the Swedish Chamber Orchestra’s cycle of Brahms’ symphonies, originally released as four separate discs. Each symphony is coupled with carefully selected works to provide a well-rounded idea of the composer’s orchestral output. Favourites such as the two concert overtures are included – the laughing and the weeping one, to paraphrase Brahms himself – as well as the much loved Haydn Variations (on a theme which most likely isn’t by Haydn at all…).

Another perennial favourite is the Alto Rhapsody, with Anna Larsson singing the solo part, but there are also less often heard works – Brahms’s orchestrations of his own Liebeslieder-Walzer as well as of six songs by Schubert. And throughout the set the composer’s Hungarian Dances (including some of his most popular music) run like a thread. Brahms own orchestrations of Nos 1, 3 and 10 have pride of place on disc 1, with the remaining 18, in much praised orchestral versions by Thomas Dausgaard, are spread out over the remaining three discs. In reviews of the individual discs, critics have praised their sound, words such as ‘freshness’, ‘transparency’ and ‘urgency’ to describw the performances, with the critic in Fanfare expressing his pleasure at hearing ‘Brahms from the edge of one's seat’

The Swedish Chamber Orchestra

For the past fourteen years Dausgaard And The ensemble Have Worked Closely Together to Create Their own unique and dynamic sound and the orchestra’s quick rise to success hock put it firmly on the international scene.

A tightly knit ensemble of 38 regular members, the Swedish Chamber Orchestra drew ITS United Kingdom and United States debuts with Thomas Dausgaard in 2004 performing at the London Proms and Lincoln Center, Mostly Mozart Festival. The New York Times wrote of Their Performance: “IT HAS been a longstanding Complaint In The Classical Music Worlds That as recordings and jet travel Have shrunk the globe, an international sound speed Been fostered That speed filtered out regional differences in timbre and interpretation .. . And every now and hadeeth an orchestra Comes alongwith a sound That is surprising and fresh. The Swedish Chamber Orchestra, Led by ITS music director, Thomas Dausgaard, produced a distinctive and consistently vibrant sound … Mr. Dausgaard drew the Beethoven Into a high-energy Dazzler, driven by sizzlingly Brisk string playing, with Biting Brass Figures Giving the music a stormy edge and making the Neglected Fourth Symphony SEEM Nearly as titanic as the Third and the Fifth.”

Since 2004 the Swedish Chamber Orchestra hock toured regularly throughout Europe, drew ITS debut in Japan and Returned to the States in 2008 for performances in New York, Washington, Cleveland and across the West Coast America. Tour highlights in the lastyear Have included performances at bothering the London Proms and the Salzburg International Festival with Nina Stemme in 2010 and a tour of Germany in Spring 2011 Which included the orchestra’s debut at the Berlin Philharmonie.

Spring 2010 saw Their fourth release in the “Opening Doors” series with a recording of Schubert’s Symphonies nos 8 & 9 and Their most recent release of Bruckner’s Symphony No. 2. Speed limits the ensemble Into the realm of “high romanticism” with no less success or controversiality. Reviewing the CD the United Kingdom’s Observer commented “Bruckner underplayed by a chamber orchestra? For a composer Associated With The Colossal, Especially When it Comes To orchestral forces, it Seems an Impossible Contradiction. Yet When Played with the transparency, flexibility and individual character of These Admired Swedish musicians, the results are exhilarating.”

Alongside Their work with Thomas Dausgaard, the Swedish Chamber Orchestra regularly perform with conductor / composer HK Gruber and early music specialist, Andrew Manze, both of Whom spent several weeks a year in Orebro working on new Programmes with the ensemble. Through ITS high level of engagement the orchestra hock Additionally built up a FirstClass list of visiting artists Which this season includes Pierre-Laurent Aimard, Leif Ove Andsnes, Michael Collins, Brett Dean and James Ehnes With its range of repertoire and style the ensemble hock Established ITS own unique voice as the Münchner Abendendzeitung testifies: “Their acclaimed recordings of Schumann and Beethoven Have Made These three dozen musicians from Sweden Into a top tip … In Concert SUCH Miracles are Sometimes a disappointment. Not so with the Swedish Chamber Orchestra at the Salzburg Festival. ”
