I am listening to Brahms 1st Symphony in a wonderful interpretation with the Berlin Philharmonic conducted by Eugen Jochum (circa 1951). I recommend this recording and its brother symphonies in a DG twofer which can be bought on Amazon and eBay. The sound is very good (on M80's) although it is a mono recording. I know there are some appreciators who visit this site who may very well enjoy this classic.
