Customer Reviews

A+++A+++5OkOk5A fun collectionWith all these performances, of course some are better than others. But they're all good, a cornucopia of Handel.5The sound is clear and sharp.The clarity makes the Handel Complete Edition a delight for listening--as well as learning how important to Mozart!5Another bargain from Brilliant.Another winner from the Brilliant Classic label. Is there a better buy is Baroque music today?5An exceptional collection of Handel's musicAdded note 10/24/15: As time permits I have been adding to this review and providing performer and venue information for the various works. I'll continue to do that until I have everything covered. In the meantime, I also wanted to add this note prominently to my review, because there is a very comprehensive and useful .pdf booklet available on the Brilliant Classics website, that provides extensive information on all of the works included in the box, as well as texts for the lieder and vocal works. It can be viewed and downloaded from:http://www.brilliantclassics.com/media/1293426/95050-HANDEL-EDITION-Extensive-Liner-Notes-Sung-Texts-Download.pdfMy original review, with updates still in progress, follows:Per Brilliant Classics: "Handel embraced all musical genres of his time, and this Edition, while not "Complete", presents a substantial and representative oeuvre: 12 complete oratorios, cantatas, Odes, Anthems, Arias, Duets, the complete chamber music, the complete keyboard works, the complete organ concertos, oboe concertos, the complete Concerti Grossi, the Water Music and Fireworks Music: a musical feast of grandeur and intimacy, of joy and sorrow, of pomp and grace, of instrumental and vocal brilliance and of every emotion a human being is capable of", and including "excellent performances by leading ensembles, soloists and choirs: Concerto K ln, Neues Bachisches Collegium Musicum, English Chamber Orchestra, King's College Choir and many others."I am particularly looking forward to hearing these performances of Handel's operas and oratorios, several of which I have not had in my collection until now: Aci, Galatea e Polifemo HWV 72; Alexander's Feast; Der Messias; La Resurrezione; Jephta; Israel in Egypt; Judas Maccabaeus; Samson; Theodora; Saul; Solomon; Semele.I ordered this shortly after it was first listed on Amazon, at a bargain price, and am now anxiously awaiting delivery as the demand seems to have considerably overwhelmed the supply. In the meantime, since the information is not provided here on the Amazon product page, following is the track listing for this box set (with conductor, orchestra and other performance information partially listed, and to be fully added as soon as I have my own copy in hand):Disc 1Suite No. 1 in F Major, HWV 348Suite No. 2 in D Major, HWV 349Suite No. 3 in G Major, HWV 350Concerto K ln, Anton Steck conductor, recorded 13-16 May 2007, Studio Stolberger Stra e, CologneDisc 2Music for the Royal Fireworks, HWV 351Sinfonia in B-Flat Major, HWV 347HWV 351: Rundfunk-Sinfonie-Orchester Berlin, Helmut Koch conductor, recorded March 1974, SKR BerlinHWV 347: Concerto K ln, Anton Steck conductor, recorded 13-16 May 2007, Studio Stolberger Stra e, CologneDisc 3-6Concerto grosso, Op. 3, HWV 312 - 318Concerto grosso, Op. 6, HWV 319 - 322Concerto grosso, Op. 6, HWV 323 - 326Concerto grosso, Op. 6, HWV 327 - 330Neues Bachisches Collegium Musicum Leipzig, Max Pommer conductor, recorded 1983, Paul-Gerhardt-Kirche, LeipzigDisc 7Concerto a due cori, HWV 332 - 334Neues Bachisches Collegium Musicum Leipzig, Max Pommer conductor, recorded February 1980, Paul-Gerhardt-Kirche, LeipzigDisc 8-12Organ Concertos Nos. 1 - 4, HWV 289 - 292Organ Concerto No. 5 in F Major, HWV 293, Op. 4, HWV 293Harp Concerto in B-Flat Major, HWV 294Organ Concerto No. 6 in B-Flat Major, HWV 294Organ Concerto No. 7 in B-Flat Major, HWV 306Organ Concertos No. 8 - 11, HWV 307 - 310Organ Concertos Nos. 12 - 15, HWV 311, 295, 296a, 304Organ Concerto No. 16 in F Major, HWV 305a6 Fugues, HWV 605-610Christian Schmitt, organ;

I'm glad I bought it. 65 CDs for $ 99.00 is a bargain.5Affordable Handel Collection!This compact box of Handel's music is a treasure! The music is very soothing and containing 65 CD's you will have plenty of music to choose from! Brilliant Classics puts out several editions of the most popular composers and all are worth listening to. This box especially, is highly recommended!5If You Are a Handel Fan, this is One of the Few Ways to Pick Up the More Obscure Pieces, and It's a Great Set OverallThis set, which was assembled by Brilliant Classics (Brilliant Classics does not record themselves, but rather, secures licensing from various recording companies to reproduce individual recordings into sets which they assemble, like this one) is like all Brilliant Classic sets: a mixture of fantastic recordings and some real duds. But for the price, you really can't go wrong, because the set contains so many well known AND obscure pieces that, were you to try to assemble individually, it would cost a small fortune. I have a number of Brilliant Classic sets, and I have to say this one has many more "hits" than "misses" than some of the others, and particularly if you are new to Handel and want a good collection, this set of 65 CD's will keep you busy for a long, long time. Some of the recordings in the set are absolutely world-class recordings by highly renowned performers, and even those that are not are often works that you rarely find in the retail chain (or require a lot of work to find them), making the absolute quality of the recording less of an issue (i.e., its better to have SOMETHING than NOTHING on these obscure works).These Brilliant Classics sets do not stay available indefinitely, particularly in the US, and tend to creep upward in price as stock diminishes. My recommendation is that, if you are interested at all, get the set NOW while there are some still out there at reasonable prices, because once they are gone, you'll only be able to get them in Europe, and even then, that's not guaranteed. 65 CD's should be enough to keep you "wallowing" in Handel for some time, and even though I've been picking up Handel works for over 30 years (Handel is my favorite composer), I'm truly glad this set came out, because it gave me those obscure pieces, plus different recordings of pieces I already have. As I say, a number of the recordings and performances are absolutely terrific. A great way to learn Handel (if you are new to him), fill our your existing set, or get inexpensive recordings by different performers than the ones you have. At about one-and-a-half dollars per disk, this is a complete no-brainer. Five Stars.Note:No ripping errors, either, when converting to FLAC, ALAC, WMA, or Windows Media Lossless. I don't think I've had any ripping errors on any of my Brilliant Classics sets, perhaps one or two disks out of hundreds. You just have to be patient to rip them all. If you are using an Apple computer, iTunes rips well, and if Windows, either Media Monkey (the free edition) or the older Windows Media Player (which, to date [mid-2017] is still a part of Windows 10, in spite of its age).5Handel Complete WorksFinally able to buy (afford and find) the complete works of Handel. This will complete my collection of complete works by Bach and Handel. Excellent for the cost. Highly recommend for any lover of the baroque.5
