33 of 36 people found the following review helpful By Buck Bauer on 20 Dec. 2008
Format: Audio CD
Like many young students of the horn, back in the 1970's, I was inspired by the music on the Seraphim LP "The Art of Dennis Brain." I particularly loved the performance of the Minuet and Trio from Dittersdorf's Partita in D, something I was no longer able to enjoy after my turntable [record player] died, late in the previous century, and the album was never re-released on CD.

Imagine my joy to find that the identical recording is listed among the twenty-five performances in this four-CD set, as are all the other tracks from that Seraphim LP.

Imagine my disappointment when I found that the track labeled

Carl Ditters von Dittersdorf
Partita in D
Minuet & Trio
London Baroque Ensemble
Karl Haas

is NOT the identically-labeled music from the Seraphim LP. It is either from some other Dittersdorf Partita in D, or from something else entirely. [It is not one of the set of Dittersdorf Partitas [KM2101] published by Breitkopf & Härtel.] Somebody at EMI seems to have "dropped the ball" on this one. If anyone reading this review ever learns where the "original" can be heard, please leave that information here in a review of this album. Thanks!

December 31, 2008 elaboration:

This set is also available from other sellers under the name "Icon: Dennis Brain." Do not be confused by the differing titles -- they are the same item.

Another reviewer suggested going to the EMI site to see a full list of the tracks in this set. I found their list to be a mess, with duplications. I've tried to sort the entries in that list, into the order in which they appear according to the list in the booklet that accompanies the set.

Wonderful Dennis Brain compliation 2 Nov. 2008
By D. Hals - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Dennis Brain was the greatest horn player of the 20th century and this is the greatest collection of his recordings I've found yet. The famous 1953 recordings of the Mozart horn concertos conducted by Karajan are included. There are a plethora of other wonderful gems in this set.

The EMI website has the entire track list and notes posted online. Do yourself a favor and read those. They do a wonderful job of highlighting each recording. This is truly a unmatched collection of Brain's best recordings.

Icon: Dennis Brain 31 Oct. 2008
By Bruce Atwell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A truly classic recording spanning the career of the greatest horn player of the 20th century. The early recordings of the Mozart concerti, not previoulsy released are a real treat-such youthful bravura and reckless abandon in the playing and cadenzas. I would highly recommend this recording.

on CD4 missing movement Trio 30 Jun. 2011
By hoedlmoser - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The whole set of 4 CDs is a must for Horn and Dennis Brain fans.
But watch out! On CD 4 track 11 should be Dittersdorf Minuet & Trio.
The Trio with its "high staccato arpeggio for first horn and the legato bass line of the 2nd horn" (as described by Alan Civil on the LP disk 45 years ago) is missing!

warning: faulty disc 3 3 Nov. 2009
By birdwalker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This set -- what I've heard of it -- is incredible. Unfortunately the third disc, with the Strauss two horn concertos, is blank. I've contacted importcds, from whom I bought it, and they will give me a refund if I return the set, but I am so thrilled with discs 1, 2 and 4 that I am loathe to give them up. In fact, the set is so wonderful that I just sent for a single CD with most of the contents of the faulty disc sent me; (importcds refuses to replace the faulty disc, even though the EMI site suggests that purchasers should use that route to handle such problems, and the seller then will return the faulty merchandise to them).

One of the fascinating things about the set is that contains an early recording of two of Mozart's horn concertos as well as two later recordings of the same works. The difference is significant, and brings into sharp relief Dennis Brain's genius. With the reservation that the set might not be such a bargain after all, I do recommend purchase: this is too good to miss.
