Brahms' Symphony No. 1 is presented alongside Szymanowski's Symphony No. 1 and Violin Concerto No. 1, featuring the acclaimed soloist Janine Jansen.
Brahms’s epic first symphony was seen as his ultimate tribute to the intimidating influence of Beethoven, whilst Szymanowski's first symphony, drenched in evocative Romanticism, is a powerful and emotionally intense composition.
