: The CSO performed (but did not record) Brahms Second with Bernard Haitink a few years ago, and it was the best I've ever heard it. I don't know if he's recorded all the Brahms Symphonies with any orchestra, but it would be worth checking out.

Interesting. A few years ago I heard a live performance of the Rotterdam Philharmonic playing the Brahms 2nd. I think the conductor was Haitink and I recall being astonished when the announcer stated that it was the Rotterdam. Apparently, the concert was the 50th Anniversary of the bombing of that city. The music was intense. DG
