Reviews

If money is no object and you have robust shelves, Deutsche Grammophon’s monster box set is the one to go for. It has alternate versions of the major works including the symphonies and concertos, a knockout roster of top-drawer musicians ... and the presentation is lavish, with nine booklets and a harback book.  Ivan Hewett
