Christoph Eschenbach recorded Johannes Brahms' four symphonies and other major orchestral works for Virgin in the early '90s with the Houston Symphony Orchestra, and that set could be considered his definitive statement on these works, since it has been reissued several times by that label and shows no sign of disappearing from the catalog

56a; Hungarian Dance No. Performer: Schleswig-Holstein Festival Orchestra/Christoph Eschenbach. The Haydn Variations is by contrast an admirably controlled reading, with some beautiful woodwind playing from the enunciation of the theme onwards; and the Hungarian Dance No. 5, evidently given as an encore, tears away straight out of the audience applause with tremendous verve and Schwung. But this wouldn’t be my first choice for any of these works

The Symphony No. 98 by Johannes Brahms is the last of his symphonies. Brahms began working on the piece in Mürzzuschlag, then in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, in 1884, just a year after completing his Symphony No. 3. It was premiered on October 25, 1885 in Meiningen, Germany.
