Notes & Reviews:

One year after the successful release of the 2nd and 3rd symphonies by Johannes Brahms, the present double CD now completes the full cycle of Brahms's symphonies, as performed by the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks under the direction of Mariss Jansons. Only a few weeks ago, Mariss Jansons finished the recording of the 4th symphony in Munich's Herkulessaal. Along with his 1st symphony ("Beethoven's Tenth"), it puts the finishing touch on the complete performance of Johannes Brahms' symphonic works, compositions oriented around the creativity of his great role model, yet in many ways also forward-looking and innovative.

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
Sound quality is fine, and the audience is quiet. (Does the decline of smoking among educated people, who are more apt to be at symphony concerts, contribute to this?) The two-disc set sells for the price of one.
