Classical music doesn’t always do exactly what it says on the tin. Brahms never told the story behind his Symphony No. 3 but, from impetuous opening to sunset finish, it’s clear that there’s a tale here that runs too deep for words. The young British conductor Alpesh Chauhan opens up vast emotional vistas, and he’s joined in Bruch’s hugely popular First Violin Concerto by Randall Goosby, whose album Roots was Presto Music’s 2021 Debut Recording of the Year. But first – just to get things buzzing – Brahms cuts loose in the fields of Hungary, with a fistful of his zingy, folk-inspired Hungarian Dances.
