Brahms: Symphonies Nos. 1-4; Serenades Nos. 1 & 2; Variations on a theme by Haydn

Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, March 2013
Kertesz's Brahms cycle has wonderful freshness and Magyar fire; his invigorating Serenade in D has surely never been bettered. Sound is occasionally a little rough.

Gramophone Magazine (Symphony No. 1)
The playing and the recording are gorgeous - just listen to the way the oboe steals in as if from nowhere for its main solo in the slow movement.

Gramophone Magazine (Symphony No. 2)
This is a really excellent performance ... This orchestra plays marvelously.

Gramophone Magazine
Kertesz's is an exemplary reading of the Fourth Symphony.

Gramophone Magazine
[The Symphonies] are superbly played by the Vienna Philharmonic and this account of No. 3 is deeply musical, unaffected and natural, distinguished by warm string tone and eloquent wind playing. The wind blend beautifully, even the somewhat thin Viennese oboe tone sounds splendidly expressive ... The recording is exceptionally well-balanced.
