It has a great monumental first movement, one of the greatest slow movements in all of Brahms and a slightly underwhelming finale. The second concerto is the greater work.

I love Gilels/Jochum but there are many great performances...

I also consider the second concerto the greater of the two, and Gilels - yes, but with Reiner (RCA).
I was referring to the Gilels/Jochum recording of the 1st concerto. For the second... Dunno, I love both the Reiner and the Jochum performances. There's also a historical recording of Edwin Fischer with Furtwängler which I've always found really exciting.
