5.0 out of 5 stars Böhm the Austro/German master.
I love every second of this Beethoven box set. Maestro Böhm is a master of the Austro/German repertoire and certainly excels here. For years I had this as a vinyl LP box from the Britannia Record Club. I’m delighted that it has made it onto a remastered CD set. Sounds great too.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lovely thoughtful well recorded from the Master, but .......
One of the most consistent cycles on disc, distilling Bohm's lifetime thoughts on Beethoven, but -
why on earth would you buy this set, when for a very little more you can buy Karl Bohm: The Symphonies (B00BK40R1M) which gives you all these Beethoven Symphonies but adds all the Brahms, Schubert and Mozart ones as well????
5CDs for 20GBP or 22CDs for 30GBP...

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fine Beethoven Symphony Cycle, 15 Jan. 2015
This review is from: Beethoven: Symphonies (DG Collectors Edition) (Audio CD)
It's good to have Karl Böhm's recordings of Beethoven's symphonies in one set. These are some of the finest traditional performances of these great symphonies. There are good classical styles in the interpretations of the first two symphonies. In the later symphonies, the interpretations make Beethoven's intentions clear. His intentions were to introduce new symphonic styles that are not the same as the styles of Haydn and Mozart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent traditional readings, 28 Nov. 2013

I remember having this box set on vynl in the 1970s which was always a favourite of mine. The pastoral and ninth are sublime (in particular the slow movement of the ninth which has to be one of the finest recorded) and there are no real disappointments here. Warmly recommended.

Wonderful music played superbly by a top class orchestra in an amazing city. Reminds me of my too short stay living there in the 1960s

Best Schubert 9 on record too!
