Format: Audio CD
I'm surprised to see that no one in the UK has so far commented on this disc, so I will. I first came across it by a happy accident when I was fiddling with internet radio on my Squeezebox Touch, and from a Ukrainian station came a very startling sound. I knew what it was, but had never heard it anything like that, and exclaimed "Who on earth is THAT?". I had to wait till the end to find out, worrying all the time that I wouldn't understand the announcement, but the experience was a revelation in both senses. I can only echo what others have said about this and the other three symphonies: one gets slightly tired of the arguments about period practice, and when the results are as startling as this, they seem quite irrelevant. Perhaps because Brahms himself was large and rotund, redolent of cigars and strong coffee, we expect and accept peformances of his symphonies that are similarly portly and dense. But when all the excess is stripped off, as Jeggy does with this symphony, it's revealed in all its youthful vigour and beauty, and you can hear absolutely everything, a tribute not only to the ORR but to the recording engineers. It's no exaggeration to say that if I was forced to choose between this recording and the splendid recent one by the Berlin Phil under Rattle, I would take this one. But I'm greedy, and will have both, thanks.
