I'll stick with my 1960s version,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brahms: The Complete Symphonies 1, 2, 3, 4 (Audio CD)
Living with, and loving, the Brahms 1st and 2nd recorded by von Karajan in the 1960s I thought I would see what he did in the 70s. The later ones are good, but I feel that in the 1960s version (all with Berlin PO and DGG} he has a greater control on the ensemble playing and just that bit more searching interpretation throughout. Please yourself - at these prices one can afford to have different versions.
