Jaap van Zweden and the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra turn in technically assured, expressively nuanced, and sonically rich performances on this album of Johannes Brahms' Symphony No. 3 in F major, Op. 90, and the Symphony No. 4 in E minor, Op. 98, so it's no wonder they have been reissued several times by Brilliant Classics, both singly and in box sets. One should not think, however, that these are the best performances available simply because of the frequency of releases, and beginners new to Brahms' symphonies would be well advised to seek out the truly great historic recordings by Toscanini, Furtwängler, or Walter, as well as some of the excellent modern renditions by Giulini, Abbado, and Bychkov, among others, before settling on a favorite. Certainly, van Zweden's earnest efforts should not be compared too closely or harshly with those of the maestros mentioned above, but he does a serviceable job of presenting these symphonies with mental clarity, musicality, and fidelity to the scores, and anyone who needs a good recording for study purposes will find this CD more than adequate and even quite attractive in the bargain. But van Zweden's emotional temperature is fairly cool, and he doesn't achieve great heights or depths in these performances, so they don't bring the full force of Brahms' profoundly Romantic expression across and instead feel a bit distanced and more intellectual than intuitive. The recorded sound is warm and full, though it is a little dense in spots where Brahms' orchestration is already somewhat opaque and in need of careful engineering.

Nelson Freire, a Humble Virtuoso

A child prodigy in his native country, the Brazilian pianist who passed away in November 2021 kept his distance from the noisy fanfare of fame. His enormous hands and his natural and virtuoso technique always assisted his full, powerful and mellow sound. Here Qobuz looks back at the career of a musician that for a long time was the “best-kept secret in the world of the piano”.

10 Versions of Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique

As a proper manifesto of French romanticism, Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique marked the 19th century as much as Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring impacted the 20th. Composed in Paris − which at the time was a global crucible for artistic creation − these two masterpieces catapulted musical language into another dimension. On December 5th, 1830 the revolutionary work of 27-year-old Hector Berlioz deeply moved the musicians present in the small room of the old academy of music, among whom were Meyerbeer and Liszt, who were impressed by the extraordinary audacity of this piece presented just three years after Beethoven’s death.

Picasso, when painting meets music

Picasso's modernist genius swiftly stretched beyond the pictorial and spread into music and dance, two art forms with which the Spanish painter always maintained a close relationship, to the point of influencing composer friends he met along the way.
