Review by Luukas January 21, 2014 (0 of 4 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:  
Gergiev isn't good Brahms conductor: tempi are slow and boring, and recording quality is very poor. If you want to hear London performances of these works, I recommend Vladimir Jurowski's powerful performances with London Philharmonic Orchestra (LPO). Marin Alsop's cycle (Naxos) is also good. This isn't good Brahms, this is horrible. Don't buy this, I'm seriously. This is awful.
