5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent traditional readings
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.

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...

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

5CDs for 20GBP or 22CDs for 30GBP? (Amazon's price fluctuates and I got the 22CD set for a lot less than 30GBP!)
Best Schubert 9 on record too!
