La Orquesta de Cadaqués ha asumido el reto de realizar la primera grabación de esta integral con un resultado magnífico, a la altura de grabaciones referenciales de este repertorio. Una grabación que tanto artística como técnicamente ha supuesto una importante apuesta que sorprenderá y hará disfrutar tanto a los conocedores del repertorio como a los que se acercan a él por primera vez. Se ha intentado buscar la sonoridad original de las sinfonías interpretándolas con el mismo número de instrumentistas de cuerda con el que fueron concebidas, ya que las orquestas del siglo XIX distaban bastante de las actuales en número de integrantes. De manera general, puede decirse que, mientras las orquestas actuales suelen estar integradas por 54 a 64 músicos, las orquestas de la época de Brahms sólo contaban con 30 a 34. De esta manera, el equilibrio con la sección de vientos, permitiría escuchar con mayor claridad el increible entramado contrapuntístico de estas composiciones.

    This complete recorded set of the four symphonies by Johannes Brahms faces some formidable competition in the current catalog. However. Surely each of these four readings deserve your hearing, your consideration. First of all. The chamber orchestra so recently founded, first for the Music Festival of Cadaques, and now on a continuing basis, is just excellent. Listeners who have grown accustomed to big boned, big orchestra Brahms may at first suspect that the players will sound under-powered, however excellent as their playing may be. And, it is true, the ear has to adjust. But adjusting is easier than traditionalists might predict. Rather like Charles Mackerras' set with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, the point of this recording project was to how these symphonies sounded if the number of orchestra musicians was anywhere near to the smaller numbers (often playing in smaller European concert halls) that Brahms himself would have anticipated. The massed heaviness of big orchestra strings are changed by the smaller number of total string players in the Cadaques orchestra. One quickly and gratefully, however, finds all the string players so excellent in technical prowess as well as in superb musicianship that catalog comparisons are quickly forgotten. What can be said in praise of all the string sections, indeed can be said of all the other orchestra players. Brass is thrilling and yet nuanced. Woodwinds are just musically bulls-eye through every possible Brahmsian challenge or habit of style. A listener must pause to praise the acoustic quality of the hall, too, and of course, we appreciate the engineers who helped make these two CDs possible. Led by Noseda, about whose performances on CD I have sometimes had my own reservations, this Brahms set just comes out beautifully balanced, expressive, with enough assertive playing and gathered power of tone that one stops fearing that any of the famous four symphonies will be anemic. If one compares the Scottish Chamber Orchestra to Cadaques, the Spanish orchestra comes out a bright equal is not first among chamber orchestra brothers. The linger lesson of hearing this set is that a listener can just smile,sit back, and relax into great music-making. Do not worry about Brahms comparisons any longer. This is just really wonderful music, played ever so wonderfully.

    Fantastic performances. The balance between wind and strings is as good as you'll ever hear it for this music!

    "...primera grabación de este ciclo sinfónico realizada por una orquesta española..." [...] "...una lectura de primer nivel, brillante, expuesta con autoridad, destacando el importantísimo entramado contrapuntístico y armónico de estas grandes sinfonías..."

  2. José Guerrero Martín, SCHERZO 30 de noviembre de 2001

    "Versiones que permiten apreciar con más nitidez el juego contrapuntístico del autor, sus aportaciones melódicas ysu relación con Beethoven"

  3. Miguel Ángel González Barrio, DIVERDI 30 de noviembre de 2001

    "Con su cuidado obsesivo por hacer oír cada nota escrita (la partitura puesta en sonido “al dictado”), con lo que incluso el oyente familiarizado con estas obras encontrará detalles, ocultos en la partitura, que ahora brillan con luz nueva, el empleo de una moderada gama dinámica, timidez en las acentuaciones (sforzandi sin mordiente), Noseda ofrece un Brahms íntimo, desnudo, puro, casi sin interpretar."
