Kurt Masur, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra
"Brahms: Symphony no. 3" (Vinyl)

It occurred to me while traipsing around the living room in my underwear dancing to "Strange Brew" (see earlier post) that I hadn't heard Brahms' third symphony in a while.  I performed the fourth last season and am constantly learning excerpts from his second symphony, but the third has been off the longer.

The Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra has one of the best names in the industry and the thrill of getting to say "Brahms by Kurt Masur with the Leipziger Gevanthausen Orchester" in your finest German accent is seconded only by listening to Krafwerk's "Autobahn."

Obviously this is a marvelous recording and I have nothing useful to say.
