 Disappointed June 6, 2015 By Louis R. (Manchester, NH) See All My Reviews "Using Bruch's extraordinary Violin Concerto No. 1 and the Scottish Fantasy as benchmarks, one would expect the balance of his works to be at least worth the listening. Not these. I found them shallow, trite, uninspired, noisy, and hard to stick with. Remember Bruch for his one or two beauties, not this stuff." Report Abuse
 A good collection of Bruch works November 16, 2012 By M. Huang (Sunnyvale, CA) See All My Reviews "This is a CD box comprising 2 CDs featuring some of the lesser known Bruch works. An excellent addition to a library that usually will have the better known and extensively recorded violin concertos especially #1. The recordings are good, being remastered from the original analog recordings. I recommend it especially as a complement to a collection. The orchestra and soloists performances are generally well done. M Huang" Report Abuse
