5.0 out of 5 stars Once again need to look elsewhere for useful product information 17 Mar 2013
By J. C. M. Bannerman - Published on Amazon.com
OK, I'm going to agree with the other reviewer that you should snap up this set. Unfortunately, the US Amazon didn't have any useful information about what is on the set.

The Frans Brüggen Edition is a box-set of 12 CDs containing many recorder recordings made by Frans Brüggen for Telefunken/Das Alte Werk between 1962 and 1979. I had the first three volumes (CDS) on Vinyl and the first 2 on CD. I was looking to buy Vol. 3 on CD and found this set.

We hear Frans Brüggen to play with Gustav Leonhardt, Anner Bylsma, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Kees Boeke, Walter van Hauwe and Bob van Asperen, among others.

The booklet contains a description of each track of these CDs; all the productions dates, and when available, recording dates and instruments used.

These versions have nothing to do with his recordings on the Seon label.

5.0 out of 5 stars A dream come true 15 Feb 2013
By Simon - Published on Amazon.com
This is one of those rare occasions when you can buy this item blindly.
It's not just an edition of a miraculous playing of the recoder,
but a superb musical event for all lovers of music and especially of ancient music.
For lovers of the recorder it's of course a reason for a delightful feast.

There's no need to introduce Frans Bruggen - he is one of the great fathers of the ancient music revival and performance in the second half of the 20th century.
All the recordings here are from the 60's and the 70's, but up to our days i can't find any recorder player which satifies me as Bruggen in respect of expressive musicallity and tone richness and beauty (exept perhaps Pedro Memelsdorf and Hugo Reyne, but their amount of recordings for the recorder is so small that it's difficult to judge).
His ideas are always refreshing and convincing, but very attentive and to the point and not exaggerated.
Of course, he was surrounded and assited by some of the finest musicians in the world of ancient music, who played with him joyfully in these recordings, e.g., The recorder players Kees Boeke and walter van Hauwe (who were his pupils), the cellist Anner Bylsma and the great Gustav Leonhardt.

The only reservation i have is that some of the concertos (for example, those by Telemann)sounds today somewhat heavy and romantic, but the blame is on the orchestra alone(or rather on the period of the recording...).

Most of the cd's in this edition where long out of stock and where sold (in Amazon too) for ridiculously high prices. Now you can buy the whole edition, new, in less than what was asked for one used cd.

The recordings are excellent with a rich and full tone (unlike a lot of the thin modern recordings of this instrument).

Snatch it, before this too will be out of stock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brueggen Shines 14 May 2013
By Peter Besenbruch - Published on Amazon.com
These are re-releases of Brueggen's Telefunken recordings. The weakest performances on this set are Frans Brueggen's collaboration with the Concentus Musicus of Vienna on Telemann concertos. The strongest piece is a reworked Bach trio sonata for viola da gamba, recast as a haunting sonata for two flutes, again with the Concentus Musicus. The Telemann concertos are merely good. The Bach is mesmerizing.

The bulk of this set consists of performances by three people, Brueggen, Anner Bylsma on the cello, and Gustav Leonhardt. This trio played together for decades. They were always good, from the Telemann sonatas of the early 60s to the much later French sonatas, you also get to hear a progression of playing style, instruments and recording engineering. The French Sonatas disc is one of the absolute gems of the set.

Then there are the unaccompanied pieces by composers ranging from the early, van Eyck, to the relatively late, Telemann. These remain the definitive performances.

For some variety, you get English consort music, and the occasional concerto. Brueggen also teams up with his students Walter van Hauve and Kees Boeke for some lovely duets and trios.

Should you buy this set? If you love the recorder, you will buy the set. If you love the instrument, you already know all about Frans Brueggen. The recorder is one of the easier instruments to master, but it takes a sense of musicianship and keen scholarship to rise to the top and dominate the field for as long as Brueggen has. To the recorder lover, you will buy it, and you will likely know exactly what you are getting.

What if you listen occasionally to this music, and you're not entirely sure what a recorder is? Should you buy it? If you like to explore, perhaps you should, though the set has woefully few notes to guide you. Compare this set to the 3 LP set released in the early 70s of Brueggen playing 17 different recorders, where you got a treatise on the various instruments and how they were made, lavish photographs, and extensive backgrounds on the composers. You could and did learn a lot about early music from reading the notes back then. This set offers almost nothing of that, though all the pieces of that earlier set are included here. The beginner will get no clue about how to proceed. If you buy this set, you will need to use Wikipedia to find your way around.

So unfortunately, this is a set for folks who already know about Brueggen and the recorder, a cheap digital dump. Call it a wasted opportunity.
5.0 out of 5 stars The Master, redux: 11 Jan 2014
By Marianne Makman, M.D. - Published on Amazon.com

This wonderful boxed set contains an almost unbelievable range of performances by the unmatched recorder master, Frans Brueggen. It is a gift to those of us who enjoyed his live concerts years ago and brings to those too young for that experience a fine collection which will inspire recorder players and enrich musical understanding of those who only listen. There is much to savor, both solo work and consort. One is also presented with the work (and thus musical styles) of many different Baroque composers from early to late, from England, France, Germany and Italy. The quality of the recordings is uniformly excellent.

I love it very much!
Of course Frans Bruggen is perfect! And I like the repertoire very much!
I want to write more, but I think I can't write better than the former two comments!
