Brahms never made a secret of the inspiration he drew from the Beethoven symphonies, but before he published his first symphony - inspired by Beethoven's fifth and ninth - he had struggled for no less than fourteen years with it. In the meantime he wrote many more pieces and his Variations on a theme by Haydn are considered to be a preliminary exercise before venturing on to the first symphony. The opening piece of this recording, the Hungarian Dance No. 14, goes back to Brahms as a young cafe pianist, when he and his father earned a bit on the side in bars in the red-light district of Hamburg and where he first heard Hungarian gipsy music. It was this experience that gave birth to Brahms' lifelong attachment to and admiration for this rich folk music style.

Few conductors have made a greater contribution to our present-day understanding of Bruckner than Günter Wand (1912-2002).
This first box includes Bruckner symphonies nos. 5, 6 and 8 in their original or restored versions as well as an elegant, but rarely performed Haydn Symphony and the "Unfinished" symphonies by Bruckner and Schubert. Later, TDK released the second box of 4 DVDs including the popular Bruckner Symphonies Nos. 4 and 7 and symphonic works by Brahms and Schubert.

Editorial Reviews - Amazon.com essential recording
When Istvan Kertesz drowned while swimming in Israel, the world lost a major conductor of irresistible musicality and charm. The performance of the Haydn Variations is famous. The orchestra finished it without the conductor, as a tribute to him after his death. Kertesz was very much alive for the performances of the First and Second Symphonies, however, and his relaxed and genial interpretations really let this great orchestra shine. These are just as much "their" performances, as is the case with the Variations, and the fact that the conductor doesn't impose his personality on this great ensemble is something that would have bothered Kertesz not a bit. It's still great Brahms. –David Hurwitz

“I am delighted to perform and record the complete symphonies of Gustav Mahler with the Düsseldorfer Symphoniker. The result, we hope, should be something special: a rendition that stems from an active collaboration in which we mutually inspire one another. This should not be “my” Mahler, but “our” Mahler…….. Gustav Mahler premiered his First Symphony at the age of 29. For personal reasons I feel a close bond with that 29-year-old Musical Director of the Hungarian State Opera. 120 years later, I was named General Music Director of the same opera house. We both hastily abandoned the institution after 2 1/2 years.

Harri Ahmas is a bassoon (Fagott) player in the Lahti SO, and, as such, he has participated in countless recordings for us. He has also aranged a lot of music included in that orchestra's records of Finnish Psalms without singing - an as surprising as overwhelming sales success story). Not content with that, he is also a composer in his own right, and we are proud to be able to present to you his First Symphony, lovingly played by his orchestra under no less than Okko Kamu. This is, for the time being, a digital-only release, so this is the only chance you have to buy it until further notice.
