AllMusic Review by

A 99-track MP3, DRM-free downloadable playlist of essential Brahms pieces from X5 Music Group, this set would be a bargain at ten times the price. It features complete works in thoughtful order performed by the Berlin Symphony Orchestra (conducted by Eduardo Marturet) and various other European orchestras, and if the musicians involved aren't always household names, the performances certainly don't suffer from it. It adds up to a great portrait and survey of Brahms at a budget price.
