Brahms: Complete Edition [Limited Ed.] 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
rafmev45 More than 1 year ago
This complete Brahms set of CDs is excellent. The recordings are by some of the most famous musicians and orchestras in the world and their individual performances are all top-notch. The cost of the set is well worth it - it is far beyond getting your money's worth. As a professional musician (composer and conductor) I higly recommend this complete set of Brahms' music to everyone, whether you are a professional or a lay person.

This limited edition collection of all the works of Johannes Brahms from Deutsche Grammophon features excellent performances by many top name artists. While DG does have some newer artist performances available, these are solid with names like Herbert von Karajan, Claudio Abbado, Karl Bohm, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Daniel Barenboim, Tamas Vasary, Wilhelm Kempff, Pinchas Zukerman, and Mstislav Rostropovich. The Amadeus Quartet and the Lasalle Quartet are also featured in the chamber works. Jessye Norman and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau are among the featured singers as well as Edith Mathis, Brigitte Fassbaender, and Peter Schreier. Unlike many of the budget collections available elsewhere, these are star performers. While there is a handy booklet with all of the tracks listed with times and credits, there is little else in the way of written information, which is a pity. The cds are housed in carboard holders with no artwork and just track information, also a pity, but 46 quality cds at this price is not to be sneered at, so I would recommend this set to all Brahms fans. Even if you have many of the works on other recordings, as I do, this set will not disappoint.
