    The violin concerto with henryk szeryng, a great violinist and a good brahmsian too (his sonata traversal with rubinstein is excellent), is way too mellow for my taste.

    If my first exposure to claudio arrau was through listening to either of the brahms piano concertos included this set, i would probably conclude that his reputation for stodginess and overstatement was well-deserved.

    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Both rubinstein-reiner and gilels-jochum adopt similar approaches, and while rubinstein's is definitely preferable, his recording still misses the mark.

    Arrau's reading of the brahms second concerto fares somewhat better, but it doesn't begin to compare to his live recordings, especially his 1963 performance with alexander gibson and the scottish national orchestra: brahms: piano concerto no.

    It's my first choice for the brahms second (even with mono sound), followed by serkin's recording with szell: brahms: piano concerto no.

    This set is worth the price for the symphonies, double concerto and orchestral miscellanea alone especially if you can pick it up from an amazon reseller, like i did, for just over twenty bucks.

    One noteworthy distinction between the two, however, is that kertesz performs the exposition repeat in the opening movement of serenade no.
