takt1 Digital from the Konzerthaus Dortmund

Author: takt1

How could anyone keep writing symphonies after Beethoven? Johannes Brahms struggled with his work for a long time, and his efforts paid off. The legendary Herbert Blomstedt presents his interpretation of his Symphony no. 1 in Dresden. And at the piano, Leif Ove Andsnes plays the great composer's first Piano Concerto.
