I feel much like the first reviewer,Brett from Australia. To my taste, these Dances need a lot more gypsy PASSION - this from a native Hungarian who recognizes that passion when she hears it! Whereas the Vienna Philharmonic recording with Claudio Abado conducting gets that Hungarian blood moving...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what Penguin cracked it up to be Oct. 17 2001
Format:Audio CD
Despite Penguin Guide's encomium, I found these performances too light and mediocre at best, hardly "Rosette" material. Vanilla interpretations.
For true Magyar eroticism and aroma, get Adam Fischer and the Budapest Festival on Philips, feverish versions leavened with cimbalom and Gypsy violin, or if ever reissued by Erato, Janos Rolla's Liszt Chamber Orch versions using the paprika-laden Hidas orchestrations for string orchestra alone (no woodwinds); both are fabulous.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music to the ears. May 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
This recording is quite amazing.
It is true that the music is played at a faster tempo than usual, BUT if you listen closely, you hear this second line of violinists in the background; Which really gives the music a nice tone.
Besides, that is what music is. YOU have TO LISTEN DEEP and CLOSELY. Don't be lazy and let the music just flow through your ears, you got to listen to it closely and at different angles.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Feel Good" Brahms! May 3 2000
Format:Audio CD
For those like me who tend to think of Johannes Brahms' music as as always sounding very serious, this collection of his "Hungarian Dances" may come as a bit of a surprise. Here we see Brahms at his warmest, happiest, and most relaxed. The Budapest Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Istvan Bogar, plays with warmth, freshness, vigor, and a wonderfully idiomatic rhythmic quality. The CD's sound quality is excellent.
This CD was awarded a rosette by the Penguin Guide to Compact Discs. (The rosette is the Penguin Guide's the highest accolade, given to a recording of special distinction) It is also one of my personal favorites. I listen to it very frequently, and always come away with a lift. I'm sure all lovers of Brahms' music will find this a most entertaining listening experience!
