4.0 out of 5 stars A slow but beautiful interpretation. 29 Jun 2009
By Salvador Salazar - Published on
This is definitely one of the slower interpretations of this symphony, but it sounds great! Buy the first movement; it sets the setting for what is to come. If you find it uneventful, don't buy it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Another sad day for the NY Phil. 22 July 2006
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on
Format:Audio CD
After ups and downs with Pierre Boulez and Zubin Mehta as music direcotrs, the demoralized New Yrok Philharmonic decided to rebuild by hiring the respected German conductor Kurt Masur. He improved the orchestra's discipline, but at a cost of a decade of incredibly dull performances.

This Brahms First is one of the slowest and least involving ever recorded. It's painfully sodden, and one can only extend sympathy to the musicians who remember the golden days under Bernstein. Recorded sound is fine, as in the orchestra's playing, but does that matter? Masur is the anti-Bernstein, bending over backward to make sure that there's not an ounce of personality and excitement. How fortunate that he has departed.
