Unique Brahms cycle

At the end of March the Nottingham Philharmonic performed all four Brahms symphonies in a weekend, nos. 1&2 on Saturday evening and nos. 3&4 on Sunday afternoon. We used the new Henle urtext editions prepared by preeminent Brahms scholar Professor Robert Pascall, who was at both concerts and gave associated pre-concert talks. As well as almost certainly being the first complete cycle given with the new parts, Professor Pascall said he had never experienced all four symphonies played within a two day period.

Mark Heron clearly loves Brahms and all four symphonies demonstrated his ability to mould detail into huge architectural designs.
