Opera, Ballet and Classical Music discs - Page 41

^^ I don't think Abbado recorded the 8th at Lucerne. Chailly and Gewandhaus Orchestra is likely a good choice.

That's unfortunate, it would have been great to have a complete set from him on BD.

IMO, no music collection is complete without Abbado's Mahler, Brahms, and Schubert.

I believe I may have it on CD somewhere....

That was helpful. Based on your reviews, I think I am leaning toward the Spanish production.

Thanks much!

I ordered his recent Beethoven BD set.
Currently, it's 80 bucks at Amazon.

The AV of this set is disappointing.
The 5.1 MA is hardly any more immersive than the 2 channel track.
The mix is somewhat of a mess too.

The video looks like an upconvert.

The outside movements of the 9th are WAY too fast, essentially taking a lot of the grandeur out of the work.
