    Have you tried to look it up at the DG site? There may be some other sites that list out the contents too. Yes, it is frustrating. A link to the contents would be nice.

    The page below has a track listing:

    https://www.deutschegrammophon.com/e...e-edition-4944

    You have to click through into each CD.

    A broader and much less detailed description of the contents can be found at the link below (could be useful if you want to get a general sense of what's on the recordings):

    I can't seem to get to the DG site (probably blocked by the fascist IT people at my workplace), but Amazon Germany sort of lists contents:

    https://www.amazon.de/Essential-Beet.../dp/B0979TL3TJ

    No doubt there are lots of great recordings, but I surely don't need this.

    BTW, that Klee recording of Christus am Olberg, with James King, is superb.

    The title seems strange - how can it be both complete and essential. To me, “essential” means only the important works.

    I suppose to the total Beethoven freak, all his works are essential.

    I suspect that even Beethoven himself would have disagreed.

    Thanks for the link to the German store, Apricissimus! That was pretty much what I wanted, although I still wish they would specify who's conducting each symphony. I find the click-through-each-cd format of the American DG site obnoxious - I just want to know what works are included and who the performers are, not see each individual movement listed out! Often the Presto site will have what I want, but that can be hit or miss, too.

    Pristine Classical have remastered in 24-Bit Hi-Res FLAC, the Karajan 1952 Bayreuth Tristan Und Isolde with Martha Mödl and Ramón Vinay in the title roles.

    I’m slightly frustrated that I didn’t know this was coming because only a few weeks ago I bought the United Classics CDs which sound a bit rough. I could have used the money towards the €45 euro asking-price for the new set.

    Yeah, and from the looks of it they still split the first Act between discs when they didn't have too. Not buying.

    Bad split on act 1 and for the sake of 5 minutes. Not good for cd buyers.

    I’m not affected as I only want downloads

    I'd choose the Orfeo release of this over the Pristine, and it's cheaper too!

    I’ve heard the Orfeo, but not the Pristine, so I can’t judge objectively like you have. What’s the Pristine recording like, and in what way is the Orfeo better?
