Robin Ticciati & SCO - Brahms: The Symphonies - Gramophone Critics' Choice

Some recordings intoxicate the senses, simply because they have so much to offer. The way in which every detail of this music has been honed and perfected by Ticciati’s trusted players in the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, and then absorbed into a lyrical, affectionate whole, is endlessly fascinating. This has to be, as far as I’m concerned, the most beguiling small-orchestra Brahms yet.
