Reviews :

« This performance of the (Brahms) First Symphony is formidable competition for even the best that the current catalogue can offer. Böhm’s (Brahms Symphony No.1) is a performance of wonderfully rich detail, the woodwind soli full of charac-ter, the orchestral colouring beautifully judged: where Karajan presents a blended totality of sound, Böhm is intent that we should see both the wood and the trees. Böhm’s view of the Symphony is urgent and vigorous: though he does not miss the broad strength of the introduction, the ensuing allegro has a purposeful athleticism that contrasts most strik-ingly with the heavy grimness of Karajan’s reading. The introduction to the finale is also an instructive comparison: Karajan sees it as an eloquent lament, Böhm as a transition of unbearable tension – one almost dreads that the great C major theme will not, after all, arrive. This is a noble performance that no Brahmsian should miss hearing, regardless of his current preferences; it is excellently recorded. » - The Gramophone Magazine
