Notes & Reviews:

Gilels' legendary performances of the Beethoven Piano Concertos, re-mastered and presented at super budget price.

"This Beethoven Fourth is one of the most perfect accounts (and perhaps the most perfect account) of the Concerto ever recorded. Poetry and virtuosity are held in perfect poise, with Ludwig and the Philharmonia providing near-ideal accompaniment. Gilels' "Emperor" is also a masterful and compelling performance" - Gramophone



Reviews
