5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, 20 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Symphony Edition (DG box set) (Audio CD)
The vast majority of these recordings are excellent. A few are magnificent. It is hard to say much new in pieces any genuine fan of orchestral music knows by heart but Abbado tries.

Despite it being my 7th Mahler symphony set I found these recordings quite marvellous. The one disappointment being the lack of the 10th but a lot of conductors won't perform that or confine themselves to the adagio.

The Mendelssohn discs are really excellent - I already had them. One might regret that lack of a complete Bruckner cycle but what we do get is superb.

For £50 this is a bargain.

I did have packaging issues. The first copy of the box arrived with an empty sleeve where Bruckner 7 ought to have been and a number of the discs needed treatment on a radial cleaner before they would play. I have not allowed these to affect my review of the music.
