Fascinating collection from the archives. Be warned, though; these are mostly very old recordings which modern ears find hard to enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars bargain barbirolli 3 May 2008
By Joseph Reichmann - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is a 10 CD set of Barbirolli recordings made in the 1930s with a few pieces in the 1940s. There are no notes and the sound, obviously, is not up to present standards. However, this is a set that should not be missed. The orchestras are the N.Y. Philharmonic and several English ones.
Sir John was a great accompanist and half the set contains performances by famous artists of the 1930s. Fritz Kreisler plays both the Beethoven and Brahms violin concertos, Jascha Heifitz plays (on two CDs) a Mozart, a Vieuxtemps, a Wieniawski, the Glazunov, and the Tchaikovsky concertos. Nathan Milstein plays the Bruch.
The pianists include Edwin Fisher and Robert Casadesus playing Mozart concertos, Wilhelm Backhaus playing the Grieg, and Arthur Rubinstein with Chopin's No.1.
All of these concerto performances are superb and worth having even if you have more modern versions by the same or different artists.
The Barbirolli performances without soloists are not uniformly outstanding. Schumann's 4th symphony, Haydn's No. 83, and Mozart's No. 33 are all acceptable. Beethoven's No. 4 is charming. The final movement of Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique excites (listen to those chimes). Vaughan Williams Symphony No. 5 is beautifully played as is Respighi's Fountains of Rome.
But,first prize goes to Sibelius' symphony No 2 which is truly magnificent with the N.Y. Philharmonic. I believe that this is Sir John's first recording of many of this symphony. There is no other conductor that has ever come close to beating him in this work. [...]

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible filtering 21 Nov. 2012
By Balaste - Published on Amazon.com
I can only second what John Grabowski wrote already about this set. I came to it thinking that Membran had done some fine releases already in my collection, usually of archival vocal material. Instead, the treble has been consistently removed, presumably under the mistaken impression that people wanting recordings of this period can't tolerate scratchy surfaces. So a good deal of musical content has been removed.

Don't buy this. Yes, other releases of this material will cost you more, but you'll also purchase something that's actually listenable. And as a big fan of Glorious John, that's the important thing.
5.0 out of 5 stars and even though not the greatest sound, and not even in stereo 1 Nov. 2016
By Bill S - Published on Amazon.com
Other reviewers have criticized the sound quality on these recording. For a buck 0er CD, I can't see complaining. These recordings from the 30s and 40s are what they are, and even though not the greatest sound, and not even in stereo, the music is glorious. I especially love CDs 7 and 8, with Jascha Heifetz on violin and CD 9. The music is amazing, and it sounds just fine to my 64-year-old ears and my much less then state-of-the-art equipment.

2.0 out of 5 stars Barbirolli--Heifetz 13 Feb. 2009
By Long Player - Published on Amazon.com
The Barbirolli-Heifetz transfers were not very good. Much better on Naxos Historical discs. The Milstein Bruch concerto was enjoyable. It was the first recording of the Bruch that I ever heard, and is still my favorite (nostalgia?).
