Rob Barnett
MusicWeb International, November 2011

Here is Brahms in late 1950s analogue stereo sound courtesy of Wilma Cozart and Harold Lawrence. It has bark and bite both as sound and in performance style. Doráti delivers whiplash, lunge, parry and recoil. This is exciting Brahms and no mistake. It’s not without affection but Doráti clearly favours red-hot adrenaline over autumnal leaf-fall. Listen to the rafter-shaking almost Tchaikovskian burst he puts on in the last four minutes of the First Symphony and in the last two movements of the Fourth. Doráti ’s brand of predatory concentration is well to the fore.

…invincible and heart-singing…A great palate freshener when you have had your fill of the musing and the contemplative. Read complete review
