Editorial Reviews

EU-only 21 disc (20 CDs + PAL/Region 0 DVD) box set celebrating the work of one of the most important German conductors of the 20th century. Wand was famous for the relentless accuracy and intensity of his rehearsals. This edition includes personally authorized recordings such as the complete symphony cycles of Beethoven, Brahms, Bruckner and Schubert. The bonus DVD is a comprehensive and very personal insight into the life and work of the great conductor.

I love Gunter Wand. Everything here is solidly "mainstream," and I mean that as a compliment in this case. No bizarre interpretations, or willful treatment; very consistent treatment of all the classics. Wand has complete respect for the composers as well as the scores. The Beethoven here is a model of moderation in tempo. The same can be said for the Schubert, Bruckner, Brahms, and everything else here. Collectors will be bemoan the fact that some classic recordings which are hard to find are NOT here (I think mainly of the handful of live NDR Bruckner recordings made in Lubeck Cathedral, or the recent Berlin Philharmonic Bruckner recordings), but this is a great package, done well. The package itself deserves mention. This is done up LP style! Nice big, thick readable book, the size of an LP, filled with notes and interviews. All the CDs are in individual cardboard sleeves, arranged in four "slots" in a big, LP-sized box which is about 1.5 inches thick. Very nicely done, though some may wish for a bit more of a "standard" space-saving CD box format. Wand collectors probably have all this, but for someone new to classical music this could easily be a starter library for standard repertoire. This would make a beautiful gift, too.

Wand's name isn't one of those household names. However, these recordings are among the finest of these works and have been a delight. I'm not happy about the LP-size box as my shelving for LPs has long been gone. You are probably in the same boat. But don't let that stop you. Grab this set while it's available or face grossly inflated prices by greedy sellers later.
