. . . the sound of Fistoulari's highlights from Tchaikovsky's "Swan Lake" holds up stunningly (recorded with the Concertgebouw Orchestra in 1961), not to mention Solti's visceral Mahler Resurrection Symphony with Heather Harper, Helen Watts and the London Symphony Orchestra and Chorus from 1966 . . . the clarity and presence of the two opera sets is undeniable -- and what performances! Serafin conducts "La Bohème" with Tebaldi and Bergonzi, and Karajan conducts Tebaldi and Del Monaco in Verdi's "Otello", both tremendously exciting. There are too many highlights to list . . .

A lot of these discs sound more like SACDs than standard-issue stuff. They have huge dynamic range, tonal beauty, and a wide, deep soundstage . . . This collection contains some of the greatest conductors . . . leading some of the greatest orchestras . . . with solos from some of the greatest musicians. (Check out Kyung Wha Chung playing the Stravinsky violin concerto under André Previn and the London Symphony.) Buy this!

A superb collection that documents Decca's mastery of the recording art . . . What a treat this 54-disc CD set is from Decca Records . . . really a thrill that Decca has put together this wonderful box set . . . Of course good sound doesn't mean much without the right artists, and Decca was lucky to have conductors like Ansermet, Haitink, Dutoit, Dorati and Monteux . . . One can marvel at the Decca sound, and some of these discs sound as good as some modern SACDs . . . I totally enjoyed the Sibelius Symphony no. 1, The Verdi Requiem conducted by Solti, and a few of the Scriabin selections. Whatever Decca figured out about audio, they were certainly doing something right. There is not a bad or even average recording in the set. Equally interesting is the included large booklet, that goes into detail on Decca's recording philosophy and the equipment they used . . . It's the best deal I've seen that combines musical and audio quality . . . The Decca set is an absolute treasure. My highest recommendation.
