Notes & Reviews:
American Record Guide
I can't imagine anyone hearing this epic performance without being struck by its grandeur. This is conducting in the great line of Furtwangler and Bernstein, and goes to the top of my list for performances of this symphony... the performance is full value.
Under the direction of Stanislaw Skrowaczewski, the Deutsche Radio Philharmonie Saarbrücken Kaiserslautern delivers a solid performance of Johannes Brahms' Symphony No. 1 in C minor that bears comparison with many other first-rate readings. For anyone who wants a straightforward interpretation that can be enjoyed and studied with ease, this is a reliable rendition that is entirely uncontroversial and doesn't pretend to offer a unique view of Brahms' music or a historically authentic interpretation. ... this is a fine recording that most listeners will accept as perfectly serviceable for their needs.
