Brahms box - DG or Brilliant

8 posts in this topic

I won a $200 Amazon gift card in a side competition at the National Scrabble Championships and I've decided to get one of the Complete Brahms boxes. The DG has bigger names, older recordings and is a bit cheaper ($65). The Brilliant ($82 up) has 14 more CDs and at least a few works that aren't on the DG. Anybody have any thoughts on the relative merits. I already have the Szell symphonies.

I went with the DG. Also ordered the Rubenstein Chopin collection.

The Rubinstein Chopin collection is a real treasure. Do you enjoy the Brahms box?

I'm talking about this box set: 11 CDs for a funny price.

I have dipped into the Alto Rhapsody disk and the Clarinet disk so far, quite nice. About halfway through the Rubenstein/Chopin, albeit with varying levels of concentration. Glad I got both.

Received the Chopin this morning and have been listening to the first disc (Nocturnes) on repeat since. Highly recommended set!
