Glorious music, played by one of the finest orchestras with their
wonderful conductor Bernard Haitink. A "must have" for anyone who loves music.

If you love Brahms and are looking for a good recording of his Second Symphony, I would highly recommend this one. The Second is the brightest and the most lyrical of Brahms's symphonies, and these qualities are brought out to perfection by Bernard Haitink and the London Symphony Orchestra. The sound quality is also excellent. I loved this recording so much that I bought Symphonies One, Three and Four as well, all by Haitink and the LSO. If you opt for this recording, you won't be disappointed.

Did you ever hear of such a thing? A truly great conductor in a brandnew, high quality recording with a world class orchestra and in therepetoir in which the conductor is rightly revered?
Make no mistake, this is a recording of real stature and can standshoulder to shoulder with Klemperer, Karajan and Furtwangler. It has allof the integrity and integrated vision of those conductor's performancesbut adds something rather special - a real lilt to the pastoral moments! The orchestral playing across the board is second to none.
In Haitink's hands (and with the great instrument that the LSO now is) thesymphony moves through moments of shining fresh air and deep broodingnight. There is no showy bombast, just really great music making.

I have just read the one star review and wonder if this is the same recording. My version is a lossless download and it is simply beautiful. A wonderful internal balence between soloists and orchestra and a splendid sound throughout. Buy it. You won,t be disappointed

The 4th movement of the 2nd symphony exemplifies the exhilarating and breathtaking verve with which the LSO customarily play these days, but the gentle lilt of the 3rd movement, the edgy beauty of the 2nd and the nobility of the 1st all equally impress. This performance, under Haitink's sure yet refreshing guide, is truly magnificent. The Double Concerto is barely less brilliant, with excellent integration of the music between soloists and orchestra (hardly surprising perhaps when those soloists are the LSO's leader and principal cellist) and really spicy playing by all. I cannot praise this CD enough.
