Brahms: Complete Symphonies - Macal        (8 of 10 found this review helpful)
  June 18, 2013

Brahms four symphonies are my favorite symphonies. I identify with them deeply. I feel that they speak to me. I feel the composer strongly when I listen to them.

Heifetz has an awful tendency to rush through everything. He does not seem to ... more
