From the samples, it sounds amazing.

1+ - I'm a big fan of Purcell's instrumental music and have had that box for a number of years - usually run though all discs several times annually - :) Dave

the Fitzwilliam  complete virginal book  coming on this November on brilliant classical , this is gonna be huge!!! I tell you HUGE, am I the only one interrest in this  15 CD box-set  :P

Some of the interested people (Harry and I, probably others too) have acquired the individual volumes along the road, so we don't need the box.

Elisabeth Leonskaja's Schubert - any particular highlights from her recordings I should sample first?

I know there's a "complete symphonies and concerti" Supraphon box, but what I really want to hear is the string quartets (Praga, hard to find).
This set gives one quartet and some other chamber music.

It's a very good box and does not overlap with the Supraphon box.  I'd also recommend the recent CD of cello/violin/clarinet sonatas.

Sinfonia Pacis (Symphony No.2), if you don't know it, is a masterpiece IMO.

I'm considering this set:

Opinions requested on these two sets.



Negatives: I have all this music in several other performances.
Positive: They are on sale for $11.49 and $11.99 respectively.

Anyone have these performances and care to say what they are like?

I only know the 4 violin concerti with Zehetmair which is my favorite recording of them but you can probably get this easily as a single (orig. Berlin Classics). Note that unlike Musica Amphion with Belder, both Zehetmair and the suites with Güttler are modern instruments, although HIP influenced (I guess the double concerto conducted by Masur is not). Never even seen the Beethoven trio recordings. They are hypercomplete with three arrangements (that I for one do not yet have but am not terribly interested in them either).

Thanks.

The price for the Bach set is probably about what I'd pay for the single CD.

As for the Beethoven, comparing it to the Beaux Arts Trio (which I've had for years), the only thing not in the BAT set is the arrangement of the String Quintet.

I think you would find the arrangement of the Second Symphony interesting.
