5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic sound and value, 21 Oct. 2013

I am no expert on classical music so cannot with any honesty say how this compares to other performances. However, I have found these recordings to be very enjoyable and full of drama and passion. The sound quality is also very good with excellent clarity and detail. Given the low price this box set is an absolute bargain and a perfect way to get the complete set of Beethoven's symphonies.

I have always liked Simon Rattle's approach, ever since his days with the City of Birmingham. These recordings do not disappoint and are powerful.

3.0 out of 5 stars I prefer many other Beethoven recordings, 1 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beethoven : Complete Symphonies (Audio CD)
It's all a matter of taste. I think that these recordings lack the drama and emotions of other Beethoven recordings (Klemperer, Karajan and Solti a.o.). It's all a little too polite to my taste. I'm a little confused about the mixing. The different instruments seem to change places in the right-left og forward-rear perspective. The double-bases are in the middle and sometimes a little at the left side, but never far right as I am used to with the Vienna PO. Maybe that's how Rattle and the producer want it, but I don't. Then again: It's all a matter of taste. Rattle is a brilliant conductor and the Vienna PO a brilliant orchestra.
