Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is an immensely stimulating and enjoyable set of the Beethoven Piano Concertos . The combination of Barenboim and Klemperer in 1968 was inspired . The elderly and frail conductor bringing all his skill as a seasoned and serious Beethovenian with the New Philharmonia to create a real conversation with the young Barenboim .

There are lots of highlights - the slow movement of No2 , the finale of No4 and the opening of No1 all are marvels but most of all the wonderful performance of the Fifth Concerto . Barenboim's playing , fresh from his Beethoven sonata cycle - is dazzling , triumphant and almost unbearably moving by turns .

A fabulous bargain and likely to have you hooked on Beethoven for life if it is your first experience of his music.

This recording is to me the ideal recording of this music. I'm totally convinced by Klemperers natural flow of the music and his clear reading. Here is nothing exaggarated or artificial.
And Barenboim leaves me almost speechless. How can such a young musician have that deep understanding of this music? There is a balance and a consequence in his playing that make me say: "Yes, this is how it should be!" And the sheer joy in his playing is unique.

If I were to lose all my individual recordings of the Beethoven PCs, then this would be fine.
Excellent performances. Sound quality is good. You cannot expect modern overwhelming high-bit digital quality, but not necessary to enjoy well-balanced recordings. Barenboim's playing is exemplary, with faultless runs and Klemperor controls the speeds admirably - no sense of slowness in his tempi.
Most enjoyable all round.

True Beethoven by the masters of the art. Quality sound. The Choral Fantasia bonus makes this a possible first choice for anyone considering a box set purchase.

With Christmas money still clamouring to be spent, I felt it was time to increase my classical collection and so recently bought two classical box sets. This one, which contains all five of Beethoven's piano concertos, plus his Choral Fantasia, I had looked at several times, plus other performances, but I decided to buy the Daniel Barenboim particularly because of the excellent reviews and on its arrival just a day after I ordered it, I wasn't disappointed. Barenboim's excellent playing, accompanied by the New Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Klemperer, is an excellent performance and for the first time, I had the opportunity to hear Beethoven's first two piano concertos which I'd never heard before. All the others, including the Choral Fantasia, I already had, although not these performances. It's a more reflective reading of Beethoven's works, but as other reviewers of Klemperer's conducting commented that he was usually slow, I wasn't surprised by it. I use the word "reflective" because although they're slower, they are by no means played at a snail's pace and as I do prefer reflective music, it was exactly the sort of performance I was looking for, although I do enjoy the concertos played at a slightly faster speed as well. The slower speed, however, does not detract by any means from the power of these works, especially the Emperor and I can recommend this box set to anybody considering buying it. These studio recordings have excellent clarity and even the quieter sections can easily be heard without the need to turn the volume too high. The discs come in a dual box and also having them as an auto rip is excellent for listening to them on my MP3 player whilst I'm away.

Beethoven can do no wrong for me and this recording does him full justice. I am holding my breath most of the time. It gives me goose bumps. The delicate touch on the piano and synchronosity of the orchestra speaks of a depth of appreciation of Beethoven's composition which could rarely be surpassed.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I got these recordings when first issued on vinyl and found the performances unbeatable and the sound very good. I waited patiently for the recordings to be released on CD but was disappointed by the transfers when they appeared in 1990.
But this re-issue is a complete re-mastering from 2006 and is a complete success. Excellent sound and the artwork of the box is also a big improvement on the 1990 version. Strongly recommended.

A superbly detailed set of CD's of Beethoven's 5 piano concerto's, superbly performed and played by Daniel Barenboim, and conducted by Otto Klemperer exactly as I am sure Beethoven would have wished.
A serious complete set that every Beethoven, and indeed piano audiophile, should consider adding to there collection, though I doubt any of these CD's will be out of their CD player for very long, so addictive and brilliant are All the concerto's and the Choral too.
Very Highly Recommended.
