#74 The Smell of Macaron

This music is tender like a macaron. One is scared it will be smashed, eaten, annihilated. It starts from nowhere and submerges to nowhere again, but its path goes heavenly high.

Young Ozawa puts a soft, glittering shell around the movement. Boston Symphony excels in tenderness and tonal color.

Composer: Johannes Brahms
Work: Symphony No 1, III. Un poco allegretto e grazioso
Recording: Boston Symphony Orchestra, Seiji Ozawa
