Brahms: Symphony No.2, Tragic Overture, Academic Festival Overture

The Symphony No. 2 of Johannes Brahms was composed in the summer of 1877. Its cheery and almost pastoral mood often invite comparisons with Beethoven’s sixth symphony. On this SACD from Channel Classics featuring Iván Fischer leading his Budapest Festival Orchestra, Brahms’s ‘pastoral’ symphony is paired with two overtures. The Tragic Overture offers a somber contrast to the sunny mood of the symphony, while the Academic Festival Overture ends the program on a positive and uplifting note.
