5.0 out of 5 stars Musical History in the making..., 6 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Carlo Maria Giulini Centenary Edition - Concertos (Audio CD)
These recordings span a period from 1955 to 1980 so some of the earlier recordings, particularly those in mono, inevitably show their age; one would hardly acquire thsis set as a direct replacement for one's favourite version of the various works included in this set. Having said that, the general quality of the recordings is very good and rarely a limiting factor in enjoying these generally superlative performances. The soloists tend to be some of the finest of their day and the sheer radiance of their music-making tends to shine through.

I found it difficult to stop playing most of this set over and over again and was reminded of the chromium- plated brittleness that seems to afflict so many modern recordings. I recommend this set to anyone who loves their classical music rather than just the sound it makes.
