Reviews

‘In the last of Monteux’s four recordings of the Brahms Second Symphony, subtleties of nuance and timing, and modifications of pacing, reflect a lifetime’s love and experience of the work, and a man who is still keen to explore its textural and structural possibilities. Typically it is light-toned and gentle in cast, almost symphonic chamber music.’ Gramophone, December 1994
