On demand: Brahms' Symphony no. 1 in C minor

Bergen Philharmonic OrchestraRecorded at Grieg Hall (Grieghallen), Bergen, Norway

It took Brahms fourteen years to write his First Symphony, but it was worth the wait. The piece launches with an imposing orchestral edifice of climbing strings, plunging winds and pounding drums. What follows is a work of gripping turbulence, but also one of deep conviction and exuberant joy.

Watch it in this performance by the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Edward Gardner.

Filmed in September 2018.
