One of the world's most respected interpreters of J.S. Bach's music, Simon Preston recorded the complete organ works for Deutsche Grammophon between 1987 and 2000 on organs located in England, Germany, Denmark, and Norway. This 14-disc box set in the affordable Collectors Edition series brings together the trio sonatas, the preludes and fugues, the concertos, the orgelbüchlein, the chorales, and the Clavier-Übung, Part III, and also includes the toccatas, fantasias, partitas, and other pieces that appeared on separate releases. Preston's playing is lucid, alert, and incisive, and his choices of stops produce clear tones that make the counterpoint utterly transparent. If one listens to several discs in a row, Preston's consistently bright sonorities and mostly brisk tempos may seem a little predictable, but any perceived lack of variety is certainly compensated by his skill and thorough mastery of this massive body of work. These recordings present the organs in nearly ideal conditions, with superb sound quality in moderately resonant spaces and without the usual blemishes associated with church recordings, such as the noises of the instruments' mechanisms or random background distractions. Because the discs were printed with minimal content information, the booklet must be consulted for identifying particular works and their track listings. Included in the booklet is an essay on Bach's organ music, as well as a helpful alphabetical list of the works with their BWV numbers and the corresponding CDs. © TiVo

This 12-volume set from Deutsche Grammophon is representative of Claudio Abbado's somewhat varied Mahler output in the period from 1977 to 1993. These performances of the symphonies were recorded with three great orchestras, the Berlin Philharmonic (No. 1, No. 5, and No. 8), the Vienna Philharmonic (No. 2, No. 3, No. 4, No. 9, and the Adagio from No. 10), and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra (No. 6 and No. 7), and they should not be confused with Abbado's later live, all-digital releases, made in the 2000s with Berlin. While Abbado has not been extolled as one of the great Mahlerians, he has contributed solid interpretations to the catalog and impressed listeners and critics with his deep understanding of the music and his passionate response to it. © TiVo

Symphonies - Released January 1, 2010 | Deutsche Grammophon (DG)

Booklet Distinctions The Qobuz Ideal Discography
Of the two Mahler cycles Leonard Bernstein recorded in his career, the most influential and culturally important was the first, recorded with the New York Philharmonic in the 1960s and early '70s for Columbia, then later reissued by Sony. Even though it has been criticized for several faults, not least of which were Bernstein's willful choices of tempos, phrasing, and dynamics, it has nonetheless been recognized as one of the foundations of the Mahler revival and of true historic value. The second cycle was recorded in the 1980s for Deutsche Grammophon, and though these recordings with the Vienna Philharmonic, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, and the New York Philharmonic were noted for their polish and greater faithfulness to the scores, they were less musically significant overall, for they came after many other conductors had raised performance standards for Mahler recordings, transcended Bernstein's interpretive powers, and expanded listeners' range of choices. The DG recordings were gathered in a 1991 box set of 13 CDs and laid out in a sequence fairly close to their numerical ordering, with few breaks between discs. This 2010 set presents the CDs in a trimmed-down box on 11 CDs, with the symphonies dramatically out of sequence and with breaks in all except the Symphonies No. 1 and No. 5. The reduced packaging and squeezed-in programming may be attractive to collectors who like saving space and who won't listen to the set often, but it will prove to be frustrating and confusing to people approaching Mahler for the first time. While Bernstein's legacy will hardly be affected by these externals, they are of some consequence to the listener's ease of playing and satisfaction with the product, which in turn will color reception and may dissuade some from giving this later cycle serious consideration for its musical worth. © TiVo

The first edition to comprise all of Helmut Walcha's recordings on Archiv Produktion, Deutsche Grammophon and Philips. Commemorating the 30th anniversary of Walcha's passing (11 August), it includes both the stereo (1956-1971) and the mono cycles (1947-1952) of Bach's complete works for organ; harpsichord recordings consisting of the Well-Tempered Clavier and the Violin Sonatas BWV 1014-1019 with Henryk Szeryng, the latter originally issued on Philips; plus other organ works from the early North German repertoire, including Bruhns, Scheidt, Buxtehude, and Sweelinck. The mastermind of Walcha's recordings was legendary producer Erich Thienhaus, a prolific recording producer and progenitor of the Tonmeister profession itself. © Deutsche Grammophon

Booklet Distinctions Diapason d'or
Presented as a sturdy box set of 30 CDs, featuring choral, orchestral, and operatic masterpieces from the Baroque to the modern era, the John Eliot Gardiner Collection brings together some of his most acclaimed recordings for Archiv, Deutsche Grammophon, and Philips. This set marks the occasion of Gardiner's 70th birthday, and he has selected these recordings as personal favorites. The performances are representative of his work with the Monteverdi Choir, the English Baroque Soloists, the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique, the Vienna Philharmonic, the London Symphony Orchestra, and other artists and ensembles that have benefitted from his association and contibuted to his reputation as one of the most admired conductors of his generation. Gardiner is well-known as a champion of period practices and authentic instrumentation, and his interpretations are usually propulsive in tempo and streamlined in voicings and textures, to remove the accretions of tradition. As can be expected of a set that spans decades and offers recordings in various venues, the sound is slightly variable, reflecting the changes of technology from analog to digital sound, though the audio quality is superb in most instances. © TiVo
