HASH(0x96c11aec) out of 5 stars Volume 3 - Contents Listing 13 Oct. 2012
By John Fowler the Obsessive Compulsive Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Radio Netherlands has issued a 7 volume anthology of The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, 1935-2010.
The first 2 volumes (1935-1960) were on Q-Disc, Volumes 3-7 (1960-2010) are on RCO Live.
The first 4 volumes have apparently been deleted.

Update: All 7 volumes, plus an additional 5 devoted to the orchestra's chief conductors, have been reissued in an insanely expensive 152 CD set: The Radio Legacy - Limited Edition

I am quite pleased with Volumes 1 and 2, the Mengelberg and Beinum eras.
The only drawback I can see is that the Dutch government, in exchange for their subsidy, apparently required the orchestra to play a lot of contemporary Dutch music.
It hasn't aged that well.
There is more of it in Volume 2 than Volume 1, but the situation really got out of hand beginning with Volume 3.
I had almost forgotten how sucky contemporary music was back in the sixties.

Volumes 3-4 cover the Haitink era, 1960-80 (though it still hasn't really ended).

HASH(0x96c16ec4) out of 5 stars Royal treatment by Concertgebouw 11 Aug. 2005
By Duane E. Crawford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra is captured in a 1960-1970 Anthology in 14 CDS that has some world famous conductors, some famous and not so familiar compositions. I liked Verdi's Falstaff and most of the Germanic composers. There was a British Britten and American Varese. I have trouble enjoying some 20th Century compositions though I have CDs by Siblelius, Ravel, Dutilleux, Hindemith, Shostakovich, Prokoviev, and Stravinsky. My pre-order for the 1950-1960 set may be hard to come by. I plan to travel to Amsterdam and take in the music venues.
