Symphony No. 1 In C Minor. A1. I- Un Poco Sostenuto; Allegro. B1. III- Un Poco Allegretto.

Symphony No. 1 in C minor, Op. 68, is a symphony written by Johannes Brahms. Brahms spent at least fourteen years completing this work, whose sketches date from 1854. Brahms himself declared that the symphony, from sketches to finishing touches, took 21 years, from 1855 to 1876. The premiere of this symphony, conducted by the composer's friend Felix Otto Dessoff, occurred on 4 November 1876, in Karlsruhe, then in the Grand Duchy of Baden. A typical performance lasts between 45 and 50 minutes.

Album · 2005 · 4 Songs. Symphony No. 68 : II. Andante Sostenuto. 3. 68 : III. un Poco Allegretto e Grazioso. 4. 68 : IV. Adagio - Più Andante - Allegro Non Troppo Ma Con Brio - Più Allegro. 68: Symphony No. 1 in C Minor, O. In a way, in this performance the Brahms First Symphony is rendered almost as if the early Romantic period had never happened, as if we'd gone straight from the Classical era of Haydn and Mozart straight into the second half of the 19th Century, bypassing Schumann and Weber and the like. So far, the recording is growing on me - I don't know that it will ever surpass Bernstein, or Klemperer on my more expansive days, but I like it for its different take on a familiar work.
