Brahms: Complete Symphonies - Takashi Asahina, Osaka PO


Canyon Classics 1997 PCCL-00306



  1. Thank Buckner interpretations and those of Brahms, hopefully in the future you can post more of the collection of Toscanini. A hug from Buenos Aires.

  2. Just to continue from the 1st Bruckner 8th thread....

    Look at the left hand side of the cover picture. 10000 yen for this cd set ! Their pricing structure is totally different than the rest of the world. We can buy one of those multi-cd set from SONY for US$30 or so, like the Serkin or Leinsdorf thread on this blog.

    I just started on the 1st symphony 1st and 2nd movement, as if i am listening to a new piece. Very different from the mainstream western interpretation style, the way the harmonics sound, I need more listening to conclude.

    Some critics said Giulini is famous to bring out the string sound, the bass line, to make a symphony sound good. This Asahina Brahms 2, all the string instruments sing as if they are one !

  3. Here's the JVC Brahms set from 1980. I will delete the link in two days. Collection is mix of FLACs and VBR MP3s, which is the best I can offer, unfortunately. http://ul.to/rfa9ltws

  4. Thank you.

    i were not aware of his Brahms other than this CANYON set. And I do a search on the web, and I think there are 5 or 6 Brahms complete set published before.

  5. Do you have any of Asahina's Bruckner

  7. Dear Bayreuth, many thanks for the great uploads specially the japan relases. Do you have by any chance to upload Verdi: Requiem with Richter which is published on Altus? Kind regards, Gabor

  8. Thank you, Bayreuth, for these rare and otherwise unaffordable recordings. Incredibly interesting music making. I had never heard Asahina before.
    All my gratitude.

  9. Thanks, Anonymous, for the other set of Brahms-Asahina.
    Could you please specify which orchestra he is conducting in this most beautiful 1980 set?
    Many thanks.

  10. What a great achievement is this, Bayreuth! May you reup pleaseee! Really. I have tried to find this cycle for so many years... And, finally, it is here. Pleaseeee! Bests from Chile! Gonzalo
