Claudio Abbado – Brahms (5 CD Box Set)
Composer: Johannes Brahms
Release Date: July 8, 2014
Conductor: Claudio Abbado
Orchestra: Berliner Philharmoniker
Label: Deutsche Grammophon

This 5-CD box set of Brahms features Claudio Abbado conducting the Berliner Philharmoniker, and is generally considered the best modern recordings of his symphonic oeuvre.

“Brahms would be the top of my Abbado picks,” critic Martin Kettle has written, “partly but not only because all those years ago he drove into the tragic grandeur of the first movement of the first symphony with a human warmth which very few other conductors have ever achieved.”
