Format: Audio CD
My admiration for Simone Young began at a high level when I heard her recordings of Bruckner's first three symphonies. Anyone who can evoke the deep emotion in those scores would seem to be a natural Brahmsian, all the more so because Young dares to try a full, expressive Romantic style - quite a rarity these days when romanticism has bee "updated" to sound efficient and prim. Young's initial Brahms recording was a letdown, however. Inexplicably she chose a sluggish pace for the first movement and seemed to swath the others in velvet, robbing Brahms of his rigorous classical side.

To see if this CD was going to be better, I sampled the Tragic Over. first. In some ways it is a convincing recreation of the romantic conducting style of two generations ago. There is genuine fullness of emotion, along with the tenderness that also belongs to Brahms. But then, Young spends the entire middle of the overture making such soft, yielding phrases that the "tragic" entirely disappears. To give her credit, she's being consistent with her view of the First Sym. The orchestra plays beautifully for her, and the engineering is first-rate.

Turning to the symphony, since the Brahms Second is the sweetest, least troubled of the four, Young's style should be a good fit. The first movement obeys the marking of Allegro "but not too much." It doesn't enter as an Andante instead but moves along. The phrasing is tender but not meandering. Many conductors lean into the lyrical second subject, but Young prefers to keep the mood as mellow as at the start. I'm glad that the conductor finds a real difference of pace for the slow movement - so often it blurs into the first movement - and the playing is lovely, even if Young asks for fairly soft accents. the flow of remains strong.
