4.0 out of 5 stars The CSO lives up to its well-earned reputation..., March 16, 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Symphony 4 (Audio CD)
The Chicago Symphony Orchestra, here under the great Barenboim, certainly has a reputation for excellence and although some pieces it charges into very brashly (Rossini overtures under Fritz Reiner, for example), they handle Brahms' masterpiece exceptionally well. I occasionally find that the CSO plays loud parts too loud, and quieter, emotional pieces lack the sensitivity that other orchestras, particularly the LSO, always manage to inject. However, the soothing third movement is performed almost delicately and the overall impression of this mammoth work is one of, perhaps, awe at the skill with which the piece has been performed. The wonderful Academic Festival Overture is, too, presented well, although a little dry.
