3.0 out of 5 stars Pieces too lengthy and ambient for a 'best of'. November 16, 2003
By Ulven
Format:Audio CD
'Greatest Hits' compilations are purposeful for those who don't want 'the whole piece'.This cd has too many long and ambient versions to be suitable for beginners to Brahms.Alot of his outstanding moments are 'blended in', rather than 'stood out'.So his melodic element is missed on some selections.But there are stand-outs.This Hungarian Dance n.5 is the most extravagent version i've heard.The tempo-changes are clever, and the orchestra packs a gypsy punch.A couple of the chamber works are great (tho u can find similar to those versions on many brahms' best of's).I find the melody of 'lullaby' is a bit lost in how very slowly it's done.Most 'Brahms' Greatest Hits' do focus more heavily on his orchestral pieces.This one also does, so I feel theres too few of his great chamber (trio/4tet/5tet) themes.

5.0 out of 5 stars HUNGARIAN DANCE #5 November 9, 2013
By Jerlaw
Format:Audio CD
I had been trying to find the Hungarian Dance #5 in my collection for some time as I am a fan of classical music based on Gypsy tunes. I thought it had been penned by Strauss, but I was wrong. Brahms composed it & I found it today. Not that this is the only "hit" by Brahms on the album. Hungarian Dance #6 is there too. On all the "Greatest Hits" albums, you will find they are done by the New York Philharmonic conducted by Leonard Bernstein. This is the very best classical series you can buy. So give it a go. You'll be glad you did.

3.0 out of 5 stars Brahms March 23, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I prefer "The Most Beautiful Music" dvds to ones such as this, which concentrate on one particular artist. It's too drab for my taste. I wouldn't buy it again.
