5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent!, 21 April 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: La Musique des Lumières / Music of the Enlightenment - Limited Edition 30 CD set (Audio CD)
I am not often driven to comment on a lot of the music I have bought here......but this set is a veritable gem and an unholy bargain - especially since I opted fo buy it even cheaper via an affiliated Amazon supplier!

I am a 'period' string player by profession and can vouch for some fine interpretations amongst those from this set I have had a chance to listen to. A very swift and fresh sounding Beethoven 9 was a pleasure this evening!
Recording quality is impeccable.........and what a treat to have such copious programme notes in a 230 (!) page booklet AND all the libretti etc on a cd rom. Yes the print IS small and in more than one language....but come on-this is a beautifully presented effort for the money? More information is freely available on the net and I have a little slim plastic bookreading glass for small print. It's still easier to read than the cooking instructions on microwave meals!

So.....musically this is a cracking set and I would have no hesitation recommending both to afficianados AND newcomers wanting an intelligently put together taste of this fascinating, exciting and rich musical epoch.

That seems like a good enough reason for NOT eating microwave meals then!

Seriously though, I am just going to order this for an xmas present ------ to myself.
