This 5 CD Brahms box of Symphonies, Serenades and Overtures, is generally recognized as containing the best modern recordings of his symphonic oeuvre.

Brahms would be the top of my Abbado picks”, critic Martin Kettle has written, “partly but not only because all those years ago he drove into the tragic grandeur of the first movement of the first symphony with a human warmth which very few other conductors have ever achieved.”
