Outstanding value for excellent recordings

This set collects a great cross-section of music, from a few quite familiar works (Tchaikovsky, Symphony #5; Holst, The Planets) to some that are by composers hardly known (Harty, Vanhal). There are symphonies, concertos (Hummel’s piano concertos played by the outstanding pianist Stephen Hough are included), chamber music, opera, and choral music. Many of this reviewer’s favorite discs are included, notably Bax’s Fourth Symphony, and in particular a disc by the Black Dyke Mills Band. Recordings were made in the U.K., Denmark, Norway, Canada, and the U.S. All are at least excellent.

This set would be ideal for anyone who has become familiar with the best-known works of Bach, Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, … and wants to try out a wider-ranging repertoire for a truly minimal cost.

  1. Good Morning, BoxSet… I especially liked this set to pick from… Orthodox Church Music is my first choice… CD #8 – Alexander Grechaninov (1864-1956), Passion Week – is VERY special. Thank you. Gouldee
