A self-critical master confronts his inner demons and ultimately produces one of the 19th century’s symphonic masterpieces. From the indomitable, pulsating opening to the triumphant conclusion, Brahms’ first symphony is performed with skill and fervour by the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra and conductor Alan Gilbert in this recording from March 27th, 2020.
