Monteux, Pierre

Brahms, Johannes

Wiener Philharmoniker | London Symphony Orchestra



Brahms, Johannes:

Symphony No. 2 in D major, Op. 73 - Wiener Philharmoniker

Variations on a theme by Haydn for orchestra, Op. 56a 'St Anthony Variations' - London Symphony Orchestra

Velg antall  


Monteux recorded Brahms’s Second Symphony several times; in addition to the present recording for Decca with the Vienna Philharmonic, there are versions with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra and the London Symphony Orchestra. He recorded the Variations on a Theme by Haydn just once, in 1958, with the London Symphony Orchestra. This reissue continues Eloquence’s survey of selected Philips and Decca recordings by Monteux.

“his is a fine reading [of the Second Symphony], the first movement unfolding naturally (with exposition repeat, as Monteux always taught his students), the second never bogging down like Walter or Karajan” Fanfare

“Monteux gives a fresh, relaxed account of the Second with the Vienna Philharmonic and the spaciousness of his reading is enhanced by the fact that he observes the first movement exposition repeat. […] Recommended.” Gramophone 1971

“Monteux’s account of the [Haydn Variations] is hugely enjoyable and the natural, unforced yet splendidly disciplined orchestral playing makes this record highly desirable” Gramophone 1971
