Pittsburgh Symphony and Manfred Honeck’s Brahms: Symphony No. 4 and James MacMillan Larghetto for Orchestra is a MusicWeb International 2022 Recording of the Year Double-Nominee!
“Indisputably the finest – and possibly the most important – recording to emerge in 2022 was this release of Brahms’ Fourth Symphony by Manfred Honeck. In an age where recordings of the old war-horses are not universally welcomed, the general thought being that everything that has been said about the music has already been said countless times, it is wonderful to be able to welcome this release of a genuinely great performance of one of the cornerstones of the repertoire. That it is also wonderfully played, in exceptional sound and with a unique coupling (the likes of which you will not have in your collection), all means this is an exceptional release.”—Lee Denham, MusicWeb International
“No fewer than four MusicWeb reviewers – including me – concurred that this is something special and I refer you to the four reviews for a collective encomium of its manifold merits. Manfred Honeck and the Pittsburgh rarely produce anything less.”—Ralph Moore, MusicWeb International
