By Mart TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 1 Jan. 2009
Format: Audio CD
The Brilliant Classics label has released several big Beethoven boxes, starting with the 40 disc `Masterworks' set in 2004 and then two further sets in 2007 of complete Beethoven works - this 85 disc set and a 100 disc expanded version with an extra 15 discs of historical recordings which date from as early as the 1926 piano trio Op. 97 by Alfred Cortot.

While this 85 CD box generally offers great value, and is perhaps the best way to obtain Beethoven's entire lifetime works, without hesitation the set I would always recommend is the 100CD historical version, if only for its inclusion of Furtwanglers's much-debated 1951 version of the 9th symphony, Klemperer's early 1955 3rd and Karajan's lesser played 1954 performances of the 5th and 7th.

The non-historical versions of the symphonies are an interesting choice. It would have been easy for Brilliant to use the Masterworks Herbert Blomstedt / Staatskapelle Dresden recordings but the unusual choice here is the 1974 cycle by the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra conducted by Kurt Masur, providing an opportunity to reflect on a somewhat rarely available recording.

The packaging is Brilliant's usual standard, a compact 30cm wide box with each CD in card sleeve showing orchestras, conductors, soloists, venues and recording dates. Included also is a CDROM with a brief Beethoven biography and comments on the music.

The particular performances may not be everyone's favourites, but I haven't heard any better version than this to give a complete overview of Beethoven's lifetime works.

Please be aware that there is another CD Box set by Brilliant, containing these same 85 CD plus 15 extra ones with outstanding historical recordings. It is worth the few extra pounds it costs.
As for the first 85 CD contained in this set version, I found most of them of superb interpreting quality. All recordings I have heard so far are of brilliant technical quality.
It can be argued that some pieces are rather difficult to find. I wonder if it is possible to make a clearer classification of Beethoven works.

A wonderful collection for dipping into. I have listened to works that would otherwise have passed me by.

Produced in Germany for Germans? English descriptions would have made the content much more accessible but would have jacked up the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Does Beethoven Proud! 23 May 2009
By John Keating - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have four boxed sets of Brilliant's Composer Packages and like many others I too am very happy. This set is very well laid out for the classical music fan - discs are labled clearly as is the inside cover of the handsome box holding all the fantastic music. I enjoyed the symphonies and the Quartet music - very, very pleasant! I still need to listen to the piano sonatas and other music contained in the set. I can say that I think I'm going to enjoy my journey into the music of Ludwig Van Beethoven. The price is right - the music is a joy - this is a no-brainer regarding making the purchase. Thanks for the music Brilliant Classics!

@*&#(remembering Beetle Baily) My set is missing 1 CD (31 Violin Sonatas).

Still, a great bargain, but I am disappointed :(

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime music 14 May 2010
By Viviana Fernandez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I am enjoying myself very much by listening to this wonderful music. I was familiar with Beethoven symphonies, piano sonatas and violin/piano and cello/piano sonatas. This 85-CD set has given me the opportunity of listening to Beethoven works I was unfamiliar with. The price for this great product is very affordable. So I would definitely recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value, Not to be missed 18 Jun. 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
As in previous issues of Mozart and Bach, this one is a winner. A sampling of a number of different works (symphonies, string quartets, concedrtos, piano sonatas...)reveal first rate performances in all cases I have sampled. The recording is also great. So, really no downside to this set at the price offered.

I use this as an opportunity to listen to lesser known works, and to compare the great ones with other recordings I have. I suppose I should not be surprised to find that there are Beethoven works out there that I do not care for at all (Examples: Various folk and national songs). But the time honored great works are there as well as all the other.

A Beethoven lover should not miss this chance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great value 2 April 2011
By Comandantecero - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
First, I must echo the advice of others: on any purchase of this size, check the set to make sure that the right CD's are included (none missing or duplicated) and that they are all playable. I saved the symphonies for last, so a few months after receiving my set, I found that the CD with Symphonies 2 & 7 was unplayable. Bummer!

Another reviewer was looking for the Choral Fantasy, op. 80; it is on CD 71, track 2. Für Elise is on CD 56, track 8; Rage over a Lost Penny, CD 58, track 7.

This set is certainly an excellent value, and on the whole the performances are solid but not inspired. The real find here is Gulda's rendition of the piano sonatas. One reviewer complained about the "lack of passion", but to me they are luminous and have a refreshingly light touch. The Coriolan overture lacks punch, and Colin Davis & friends dutifully plow through the Missa Solemnis to little effect. On the whole, though, the Beethoven fan with a tight entertainment budget (and isn't that all of us these days?) will find much to like here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Glorious Practicality 13 Mar. 2008
By Spencer Morrow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
There's hardly a music lover out there who doesn't already have multiple recordings of the Beethoven symphonies, quartets, concertos, etc., performances from which we choose according to mood, frame of mind-- to any number of reasons. So why not add another set of each? It never hurts to have another take on this infinitely interpretable music, and have it on the cheap. But wait! There's more! I'd bet even most rabid classical fans don't have more than one "Christ on the Mount of Olives", "Music for a Ritterballet", or "Leonore". Imagine what it would cost in money, and time, to fill out a complete-works Beethoven (beyond your favorite sets of the well-known works) with all the wind music, songs, dances... Brilliant lets you do this in one quick, very painless, swoop.
Some thoughts on a few of the major works:
The Symphonies, with Masur and Leipzig, struck me as very nice, mainly because in this day of historically informed performance, they are a throwback to the old school of Beethoven playing. Larger ensembles, more relaxed tempi, etc. Not that I'll toss Gardiner, Hogwood, and Norrington away, but it's nice to hear, now and then, Beethoven played like it was when I was just getting into serious music. His recording of the Ninth is particularly delightful for those who occasionally want to hear this work "big"--and I mean big. In the fourth movement Masur uses the forces of two choirs and a children's chorus!
The Piano Sonatas, with Friedrich Gulda, are a bit laid-back, compared to some, but the pianist is certainly dedicated to his interpretations, and can thunder when its called for. He's hampered a bit by (I suspect) his engineers; the piano sound can be harsh in the higher registers, and tubby in the bass. But all in all, not a bad set to have. Gulda's playing works well in the Piano Concertos, for the most part well balanced with the orchestra, especially in the 5th Concerto; often a modern piano can overwhelm Beethoven's rather light scoring in this work--Gulda does not.
The String Quartets by the Guarneri Quartet are played with all the drama this ensemble is known for. No matter what sort of interpretation one likes, these will hold your interest.
Pleasures:
Nice to see some of the old Alfred Brendel recordings of some of the Piano Variations, especially since as I write this, Mr. Brendel is in the midst of his American Farewell tour. His playing has always been exemplary of knowledge, feeling, and pure, honest musicality.
The settings of Irish and Scottish songs are pure fun. Listening to some of the singers' accented English adds to the charm.
Guilty Pleasure:
Neville Marriner's version of "Wellington's Victory". This grandly silly take on an already grandly silly work is almost worth the price of the set.
I'll not get into a discussion on what constitutes a "greater" or "lesser" Beethoven work, but only say that throughout his canon, top to bottom, there's hardly a piece in which one will not hear a turn of phrase that brings a smile, an unexpected modulation, a perfect dissonance--something that makes the listening worthwhile in any number of ways.
