This CD of Brahms' Symphony No.1 is a live concert recording from 1983. Leonard Bernstein leads the Vienna Philharmonic in a well-played performance that is good but not necessarily a classic. This doesn't mean that the concert is just merely competent or phoned in, it is *good*, it's just that Bernstein rarely makes you sit up and take real notice. The all-digital sound from DG is very good - the sonics are very clear and surprisingly - given that this is a live recording - there is no coughing heard in the audience (the bane of live classical recordings everywhere).

If you like this recording of Brahms' first, you should probably get Bernstein's recordings of the other symphonies (which you can get separately or in a boxset). If you want something different you might want to check out Solti or (as long as you don't mind the old mono sound) the great Furtwängler.
