Notes & Reviews:

"Mr. Chailly's Brahms was not as intense as Arturo Toscanini's or as mystically compelling as Wilhelm Furtwangler's or, to name another Concertgebouw predecessor, Willem Mengelberg's. But it balanced those attributes skillfully, and if capitalized on the warm, woody tonal qualities of this fine orchestra." -The New York Times
