David Patrick Stearns
The Philadelphia Inquirer, January 2002

"Made in 1938 and 1940, these recordings show an artist who employed any means possible to get the most out of the music. The Symphony No. 2 has little of its usual repose, thanks to its exhilarating, unforgettable fleetness... Mengelberg's reading of the tragic final movement...transcends everything: Each musical episode becomes its own world - and one that's coming to an end."

Jed Distler, December 2001

"Ward Marston's transfers are the finest now available of these recordings...If you want Mengelberg's Brahms 2 and 4, Naxos' bargain price and superior transfers speak for themselves."
