"The one essential survey of the symphonies may now be had in a new boxed set of Wilhelm Furtwangler's Brahms, on the painstaking Music & Arts label."

--Alex Ross in The New Republic

This is a revised and partially remastered reissue of our extremely successful out of print  CD-941, Furtwängler Conducts Brahms, which was acclaimed as the outstanding Brahms collection by Bernard Sherman in Schwann Opus, and Henry Fogel in Fanfare. The weaker version of the second piano concerto by Aeschbacher contained in the original issue was replaced with Edwin Fischer's superior version and John Ardoin's extensive notes in the booklet were revised.
