    For value for money you have got to look at the Dover Publications selections. I came to the Berlioz requiem some 25 years ago at a prom concert in Sydney (Australia) and was fascinated by the use of massed brass choirs and multiple timpani (16 drums played by 12 timpanists...

    ). I then (25 years later) purchased the Atlanta/Shaw recording on CD and needed to see just how the music was put together. If you like to read along to your favourite classical pieces getting a F/O (full score) like this is a tremendous buzz and this Dover publication is a "Full Score"! No piano conductors here; everything is laid out for the reader. Some of the dynamics are not included, however, and this can be disconcerting for the first time user. However, nothing that a couple of read-throughs and a sharp HB pencil and quick-hand cannot fix. Also, if, like me, you like/need to transcribe parts for individual instruments this is an excellent way of doing so. Great publication but not for the novice.
