Customer Review

I already had the Sony Symphony Edition, so buying this was a no-brainer. While many of Leonard Bernstein's best recordings were the ones he did for Sony, he did far more for Deutsche Grammophon. The approach in this set — and the forthcoming second volume — is to present composers alphabetically. So this set contains Beethoven, Brahms, Haydn, Ives and others, along with Bernstein's own compositions. If you like his own work, this is the best way to get all of the recordings he made conducting his own compositions. And if you like Leonard Bernstein in general, you will certainly want to get this set. I'm looking forward to volume 2, which is supposed to be released in 2015. That one will contain his second Mahler cycle, which is wonderful, his recordings of Sibelius symphonies, and many others.

This has original LP covers for the CD jackets, and is in an LP-sized box, just like the Sony set.
