Verified Purchase
This is a very cheap box and you don't get the best in conductors or any luxurious box with massive information. But I tried to listen to a couple of the cd's: first tchaikovsky 5, I like Mravinsky and Leningrad symp, the version here is not in that league, but it is solid and worth hearing (in opposition to many other recorded version I have heard).
Next I tried another 5, Prokofiev, the ultimate reference recording for me being Rozhdestvensky, the version in this box is very pale, frail and delicate compared to that. But again actually interesting to listen to Buenos Aires philharmonics playing Prokofiev.
Don't expect the best of the best, on the other hand a surprisingly good box, considering the price.
Sound is ok.

I paid £12.03 for this set of CDs, including postage!! There are some unusual works/performances on these discs, and some surprisingly excellent versions(eg the Rachmaninov and Scriabin CDs). So even if you only want to keep a few of them in the end, at this price, you can afford to give some away to friends/charity shops(I have!) Strongly recommended at this price!!

What on earth is on this collection. A 40cd set and we don't even have a list of contents. As there is no mp3 version there is no way of knowing.
