Symphony No.1 in C Major, Op.21

Symphony No.2 In D, Op.36

Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, Riccardo Chailly

Total Playing Time: 1:10:58

Riccardo Chailly delivers a characteristically high-voltage account of the First Symphony, perfectly capturing its moments of brusque humour with superbly incisive "sforzando" accents from his Leipzig players, yet allowing sufficient space for the graceful aspects of the second movement to come to the fore.
