There is a bonus with Franz Welser-Möst and Julia Fischer discussing the Violin Concerto.  Released 2015, disc has 5.1 dts-HD Master Audio sound. We don't grade the box. See links below to to the 3 individual titles for grades on the major works, which range from A to D+!

Recently we have seen a trend of publishers packaging 3 or more previously independently-released discs into box sets (Opus Arte has been a leader in this). Here we have the opposite: In 2015, Belvedere published this Brahms Cycle box set; in 2017-2018, Belvedere published each of the 3 individually. So for complete information, follow the links below:

Disc 1, with the Violin Concerto and Symphony No. 4

Disc 2, with Symphonies 1-3

Disc 3, with Piano Concertos No. 1 and No. 2
