I see that the August releases from Naxos include new recordings of Brahms' Symphonies 3 & 4  Huh

I wonder why we need new recordings of these two works?

It is in fact a complete set of the Brahms symphonies played by the Gyor Philharmonic Orchestra from Hungary.

One does not wish to be unkind to Naxos-which records a lot of neglected repertoire-but I cannot but agree. I wonder who actually needs the Brahms symphonies played by a provincial Hungarian orchestra??

It's been well sponsored and celebrates the 50th anniversary of the orchestra. I hope it will have considerable local interest at least.

Fair point  If large numbers of the population of Gyor and the surrounding district buy the cds then they will easily recoup the cost

If its been "well sponsored" (i.e. paid for by outside parties) then conceivably sales numbers don't matter.  Costs were covered in advance.
