Exhilarating Brahms from Sir John Eliot Gardiner

Listen to a clip from Symphony No. 4 here!


‘John Eliot Gardiner’s Brahms cycle reaches its culmination in more ways than one. Here everything seems in focus: not just the tempo, but also the rhythmic drive and impassioned urgency seem absolutely right in the third and fourth movements – the finale ferociously tragic yet also exhilarating.’ Stephen Johnson
