Customer Review
Kapell's way with a keyboard will seize the imagination of most listeners. The recordings themselves are vintage, of course, but the performances are timeless. A true memorial to a musician who was forced to leave the planet far too soon.

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.
