Notes & Reviews:

Customer Review
The Sony sound on these discs is remarkable, finely detailed and overwhelming when the dynamic rises to a high level... The strings are also quite warm and wealthy. Brass are flawless, with a wide palette of color that one doesn't often hear.

These imports feature German pressings from the immense Sony Classical Masters Catalog in smart and collectible multi-disc editions. The Sony catalog is replete with legendary artists and hold many of the greatest recordings of the classical repertoire. Each box features large, prominently displayed photo of the featured artist. and comes packaged in a slender, shelf-friendly box with the CDs themselves housed in space-saving slipsleeves.
