With sound as fine as the finest remasterings that have ever been done, with notes as superb as the finest that have ever been written, and with production values as high as the highest ever lavished on any recordings, this set is absolutely essential for anyone with the least interest in the finest body of works ever composed for the piano by the greatest composer ever to exclusively devote himself to the instrument.
