The first and final movements of Brahms’s Third Symphony contain some of the most dramatic music he was to compose, yet both end serenely and enclose two beautiful inner movements. The equally exquisite Serenade No 2, unusually scored for wind instruments, violas, cellos and double basses, was one of his own personal favourites and both receive superb performances under Bernard Haitink in the third part of his internationally acclaimed LSO Live Brahms cycle.
 

"enchanting ... The sense we have here is of a musician re-discovering a piece he once loved and mistakenly thought he knew."


Gramophone - 17 March 2005

’a really beautiful performance of the second serenade ... A delight - this seems to me a new benchmark. It goes without saying that the playing is excellent: the LSO can probably play Brahms symphonies in its collective sleep.’
