"This is probably the best version of Brahms' Hungarian Dances in the catalogue (although I find the Ivan Fischer one to be an excellent supplementation). The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra under Claudio Abbado plays with verve and enthusiasm, and every single dance is well-nigh perfectly judged with respect to overall shape, individual detail, and spirit and energy. The contrast between delicacy and muscularity is admirably realized and so is the full range of colors (in particular, I find the wind playing impressive). Just listen, e.g. to the ones Brahms himself orchestrated, in particular no. 3 and 10, and be assured that no matter how many times you might have heard them in other versions, this one will reveal new aspects."- G D/Amazon reviews.

A wonderful, warm, detailed sound.
The album was purchased new and played once - then washed on a VPI Cleaning System and played again while being recorded to tape. It has not been played since.
