It seems extremely churlish to punish this bargain boxset for cutting back on the niceties of a full-priced release. No, there isn't a booklet, but it's £20 for goodness' sake. You have track listings on the back of every CD, which - if you already know the pieces in the box - should do you just fine.

What you DO get with this box is some of Boulez's finest conducting. Particular highlights are the string orchestra Verklärte Nacht with the New York Philharmonic, rich and sonorous and incredibly vivid - one of the most thrilling bits of music Boulez has committed to disc; a definitive Survivor from Warsaw with a nigh-on-perfect speaker in Günter Reich; very fine recordings of the major dramatic works Erwartung, Moses und Aron (Acts I and II), Die Jakobsleiter and Gurre-Lieder; a luxury recording of Pierrot lunaire with Yvonne Minton, Daniel Barenboim, Michel Debost, Antyhony Pay, Pinchas Zukerman and Lynn Harrell; and a few of my favourite Schoenberg rarities, such as the Suite Op. 29 and Serenade Op. 24, in fine Ensemble Intercontemporain performances.

The only discs I found less-than-compelling were the two choral music discs, which had a couple of highlights (Kol Nidre, the aforementioned Survivor from Warsaw) but which I otherwise found pretty dry. Still, nine superb discs out of 11 makes for a pretty compelling package in my books, and at this price any self-respecting Schoenberg fan should stop reading this review now and direct their cursor to the 'Buy' button at the top of the page.

It seems a bit harsh that the overall rating of this product has been dragged down due to two reviews focusing on the lack of a booklet, so this review will comment on the music, which is exceptional.

First of all, it's a brilliant introduction for anyone who doesn't know any Schoenberg. It provides two of his early Wagnerian pieces- Gurre Lieder, an epic piece requiring one of the largest orchestra/chorus/soloist/narrator combos in the classical canon, and Verklate Nacht (in both string quartet form and orchestrated). These are excellent pieces, worth the price of the set alone and essential in understanding Schoenberg's progress as a composer. Weirdly, it doesn't contain Pelleas and Melisande (another generally tonal piece), although Boulez has recorded it and it is available elsewhere. This exclusion is the only downside of the set.

In terms of the other more atonal pieces, there is an excellent array of orchestral, choral, vocal and operatic works. His Five Pieces for Orchestra is a very good introduction to atonal music, showing that atonality doesn't have to be grating on the ear. Pierrot Lunaire is on of his most important pieces, a song cycle which is one of the first of the speech-singing genre. Other pieces, such as Ode to Napoleon Bonaparte and Kol Nidre (both set to English language texts), that one wouldn't necessarily buy unless they were part of a set, are extremely good, the former being one of highlights of the set. I've only mentioned a fraction of the music included- it would be too long a review to go into everything here- but the other performances are first rate too.

Recording quality is excellent, so is Boulez and co., and so is the price. If you want to get to know Schoenberg or atonal music, this is a very good place to start, and will last you for ages.

What a bargain! 11 CDs in a box for less than the price of two. But it isn't only a bargain as these are renowned performances of Schönberg by Pierre Boulez, one of his great champions. There may be better discs of some of Schonberg's music and if you already have a fair bit of it in your collection you probably won't want this, but for anyone who doesn't this is a great way to explore this composer.

I have mixed feelings about the works performed here but, at this price, I feel that I have a great opportunity to rethink my prejudices. I love Verklarte Nacht and the two different recordings make me feel that I have certinly got good value whatever I think about the other works.
