Excellent performances

Conducted by Herbert von Karajan, Bohm in the Orchestral Works volume together with the most famous performers over the world, Daniel Barenboim etc. in Chamber Works, you will simply found most of these recordings nearly perfect, if not all. If you enjoyed Schumann’s Lieder you shouldn’t miss his Lieder volume – his works resembled the style. Be reminded that even though many works was recorded in 1979 and 1982, of which some is ADD, this is still worthwhile. To conclude, simply, an outstanding box set.
