Blomstedt’s Boring Brahms First Symphony (Video Review)

Review by: David Hurwitz


Artistic Quality: 6

Sound Quality: 9

The bottom line:

This new release is a snooze, plain and simple. I wish it were otherwise; Blomstedt is such a fine conductor, but here he turns in a “sensitive” performance strong on nuance but fatally weak in fire and passion.
