Having collected the entire "The Masterworks" series (including the Bach and Mozart Complete Works) this set is the 'clinker' of the bunch. First off... 6 CD's of Lieder 'historic' (pre-historic) recordings. No Overtures, No Orchestral Seranades, No Haydn Variations?? The performances of the Symphonies and the Concertos are shakey and not very well recorded. Brilliant Classics, who has done such a wonderful job with the Hadyn Complete Symphonies (licensed from Nimbus), the Mozart and Bach Complete sets, has stumbled a bit with this release.

I don't want to belabor the point made by my headline, but calling this set a "clinker" is going too far in my opinion. Yes, Jaap van Zweden's performances of the symphonies are hardly world-beaters, but they are fine, lean, musicianly accounts that will please folks who favor Brahms by conductors like Weingartner, Sawallisch, and others. Not bad company to be in! Yes, the performances of the concertos are also less than prime contenders, although Karin Lechner's deftly meditated and subtly articulated piano concertos grow on me each time I hear them, and the Double Concerto features strong leads in violinist Emma Verhey and the great cellist Janos Starker. And YES, it is shocking that Brilliant did not see fit to include the Haydn Variations, Tragic Overture, and the two luscious orchestral serenades. Along those same lines of criticism, the box contains a thoroughly enjoyable performance of the "German Requiem," but omits other classic choral/orchestral compositions like "Naenia," "Gesang der Parzen," and the Alto Rhapsody.

So much for the debits ... on to the goodies! Besides thoroughly competent performances of the symphonies and concertos, I find that the chamber music performances are all quite fine and beautifully recorded, ditto the extensive selection of smaller-scale choral music, a capella or with piano accompaniment. In fact, I'd wager that these choral music discs will bring the greatest and most pleasurable surprises for many purchasers because, outside Germany and Austria, this music is still little known and most of it is astonishingly beautiful. Finally, the solo piano music is placed in capable hands ...
