During the 1950's, Karl BOhm made a handful of orchestral recordings for Decca with the Wiener Philharmoniker of, music by, among others, Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms Schubert and Weber. The Brahms Symphony is performed with sweep and with classical poise and the music is clearly in the Viennese players' blood (after all, they premiered the symphony in the Grosser Saal of the Musikverein, the very location where this recording was made). It receives it's first international release on Decca CD. Weber's star has, today, rather receded from our view, his name kept alive by but a handful of pieces. Yet he was, in some ways, heralded as the dawn of the Romantic tradition and BOhm's affectionate readings of these Overtures now reappear in the catalogue.

Symphony No. 3 in F Major, Op. 90
