4.0 out of 5 stars Nice selection at budget price but 1 wrong CD
I confirm the wrong CD N10. Otherwise the box displays really a nice selection and good interpreters.
Seems perfectly appropriate for discovering Schubert.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wrong track listing/label
The 10th CD in this set, which is supposed to be the String Quintet, turns out to be a recording of the song cycle Winterreise! (This is presumably Brilliant Classics cat. no. 94053 featuring the baritone Christian Hilz.)

3.0 out of 5 stars Wrong track listing/label, 14 Nov 2012
This review is from: Schubert - Masterworks (Audio CD)
The 10th CD in this set, which is supposed to be the String Quintet, turns out to be a recording of the song cycle Winterreise! (This is presumably Brilliant Classics cat. no. 94053 featuring the baritone Christian Hilz.)

Apart from this glitch, the set represents a handy collection of some of Schubert's greatest works, including 'authentic' performances of four of the symphonies by the Hanover Band.

3.0 out of 5 stars Schubert Masterworks (10CD version), 29 Sep 2009

This review is from: Schubert - Masterworks (Audio CD)
The Brilliant Classics label specialises in box sets like this one and I've always found their recordings, generally from the 1990's and 2000's, to be more than adequate even if they don't always offer the listener's particular favourite orchestra, conductor or soloist.

This 10 disc collection of some of Schubert's popular works is a smaller version, and the same recordings, of the Brilliant Classics 40 CD box set entitled `The Masterworks'.

As a way of collecting a respectable amount of works by a single composer this space saving slim line box is ideal, and the label has also released matching 10 CD sets by Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Dvorak, Handel, Haydn, Mozart, Mendelssohn, and Vivaldi, plus a bumper size 100 disc version of all the composers except for Haydn.

I would however recommend checking out the larger and more complete 40 CD version for comparison before making any purchase.
