I'm actually not a big fan of box sets containing a potpourri of "famous" recordings. The two Deutsche Grammophon 111 boxes did not manage to convince me - of course they contain many good and even fantastic recordings by truly great artists, but there are also some strange choices. Moreover, one can hardly call the recent recordings by Lang Lang, Yuja Wang, Alice Sara Ott, Rolando Villazon, Gustavo Dudamel and so on "legendary". Including these names was obviously a commercial move. The same can be said about Sony's box called "25 legendary recordings". The "RCA Living Stereo" box is great, but it contains a lot of mainstream repertoire.

This box is different. There is only one disc which doesn't really belong here (#38, the three tenors) and which has obviously been included for commercial reasons. But oh man, what a great series of discs this is, and for what a ridiculous price. Many of these recording truly deserve the label "legendary", and some of the choices made by Decca are really interesting and courageous - because a good number of these discs contain "difficult" music, non-standard repertoire or feature legendary performers which are much less well-known nowadays. This is not just a medley of well-known compositions performed by famous musicians, not at all.
