The newest Cleveland Orchestra DVD release is a three-disc set of Brahms’ Orchestral Works recorded live at world-class venues. Available on DVD and Blu-ray, the box set features the four Symphonies, both Piano Concertos, the Violin Concerto, and three other orchestral works.
These works were recorded live in three of the world’s most acclaimed concert venues between January 2014 and March 2015: at Severance Hall in Cleveland, the Orchestra’s home concert hall, often regarded as one of the world’s most beautiful concert halls; at London’s Royal Albert Hall, home of each summer’s BBC Proms Festival; and at Vienna’s famed Musikverein. In addition to the musical performances, the DVD set includes bonus footage of interviews with conductor Franz Welser-Möst, Yefim Bronfman, and Julia Fischer providing insight and reflection about recording and performing these iconic Brahms masterworks.
