In his 1987 version of the First Symphony Karajan draws a typically powerful and dramatic performance, beautifully played, which sounds warm and spontaneous.

 Engaging Orchestral Presentations May 29, 2016 By M. Bishop (Clackamas, OR) See All My Reviews "Herbert von Karajan and the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra (BPO) start out on this album on a sure footing in their playing of Brahms’ Symphony #1. The pulsing drum beat along with the staid playing by the BPO characterize the opening lines of Brahms’ first symphony. I consider the sound quality a solid 10/10 with the lower register notes coming through with equal force as the higher register notes do. With this album I now have all four symphonies of Brahms as played by the BPO, and the overall performance of the symphonies is excellent. I give this album my highest recommendation." Report Abuse
