Notes & Reviews:
If you would believe the "big" words of Maestro Celibidache, "The Record or CD is the destruction of the music - because she can be not authentic, honest, acoustic space, she could never solve the emotions a live concert offers", then there are two answers: He was right and wrong at the same time.

There are good recorded performances by Ansermet, Böhm, Boult, Barbirolli, Janowski, and others. I like the DG Vienna/ Böhm. It is powerful, relatively objective, and offers a much clearer picture of what Brahms actually wrote. Böhm divides his violins, firsts on the right, seconds on the left, to obtain a wide and convincing interplay of sound - sound that is captured rather well in DG's early 1960s stereo recording.
Recording information: Konzerthaus Vienna (10/30/1952).
