Ivan Fischer Conducts Brahms

Ivan Fischer is perhaps best-known for building the Budapest Festival Orchestra into a renowned ensemble. His interpretations of the music of Bartok, Kodaly, Dvorak and Brahms are wonderfully fresh and imaginative. He made a particularly fine recording of all the Hungarian Dances by Brahms and it is outstanding. Here is Fischer with the Berlin Philharmonic in one of the least played of the dances. Note the flexibility in the phrasing, the attention to detail and the robust sound he gets from the strings.
