I was a little surprised when I read the review posted on this. I picked up this product at a bookstore because the container caught my eye first. After enjoying it for some time, I've come to amazon to find the others in the series. I've been quite pleased with the four cd's in this collection, especially the third one which I play often. When I looked over the review, I pulled out my copy to see if I noticed the problems stated. The pieces are labeled correctly on the back of the tin as well as inside the cd holder within the tin. Next to Sympony No. 5 which is the third track on cd 1, it is labelled "I. Allegro con brio" (which is the first movement--that's the roman numeral for 1 or first). Anyway, within this collection I found a few pieces I haven't heard in other Beethoven collections I own, so I was more than thankful for this find.

This CD set is a wonderful representation of Beethoven's work. The set I purchased is not mislabeled. Even if it were, this would not, for most, detract from the timeless enchainment of the music. As a Beethoven fan and classical music lover, I would recommend this set to aficionados and novices alike. These CD's provide a relaxing and rejuvenating backdrop for day-to-day activities and is great traveling music as well. A great deal on a great deal of excellent music.

The selections are mis-labeled. The opening movement of the 5th Symphony is labeled the 3rd Movement. The first CD supposedly has four tracks but comes with six -- and there is no label for the last two, even when using the online album information.

Somebody blew the production and packaging in a big way!
