Chamber Orchestra of Europe, Yannick Nézet-Séguin

Brahms: Symphonies Nos. 1-4 (3CD)

Yannick Nézet-Séguin delivers transparent, utterly natural and fluid performances of the four Brahms symphonies with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe. 

A concert in Baden-Baden’s Festspielhaus ended to euphoric applause, with no one knowing who was at whose feet. The conductor the orchestra, the audience the conductor or all together the composer Johannes Brahms?  The reason for the enthusiasm was his Second Symphony, nicknamed ‘Lichtentaler’, because he had completed it here, in Baden-Baden’s Lichtental district. And now, with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and its conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin, it was given a performance that was one of the great moments in this house: orchestrally lightened, transparent to the core, everything performed with the greatest naturalness. Collected here are all four of Brahms’s masterworks under Yannick Nézet-Séguin.
