If you are expecting more than downloads on CD - then don't buy this box set
on 26 December 2013
When I opened the box I was nonplussed when I could find absolutely nothing in the box except the CDs. My first thought was "Oh, someone's forgotten to put them in, but Amazon will sort that out soon enough". So, when I came back to my order then this page to find I wasn't the first to discover the problem, I was both very surprised and disappointed. You get the title of each track, and its duration - and that's it. Nothing about the music, or Sequentia......
Sorry Sony - you seem to have missed the point of box sets, or indeed any recording on "hard copy" - at least for classical music. And that is to enhance the music with information about the music and the performers. This helps to make sense of the music, and put it into some historical context. It doesn't need to be an encyclopaedia - just enough to get the interested listener started.
So I have given this set 1 star. Don't think the music isn't excellent or the recording - that's all fine. But if wanted a download, I would have bought a download.
