5.0 out of 5 stars Solid retrospective! June 1 2012

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.
