Notes & Reviews:

Drawn from the worldwide holdings of Sony Classical Music and re-mastered in 24bit High Resolution Audio, these smart, desirable and collectible multi-disc editions, replete with legendary artists, offer many of the finest, most sought-after recordings in the classical discography. The slender, shelf-friendly box frontages feature large, prominently displayed photos of the edition’s featured artist, work listings at the back, with the CDs themselves housed in protective sleeves that divulge the recording specifics for each performance. Though hardly remembered today, the remarkable Hungarian-born pianist Lili Kraus (1905–1986) studied with Kodály and Bartók in Budapest and with Eduard Steuermann and Artur Schnabel in Vienna. She was best known as a Mozart player – one season in New York she performed all the piano concertos, the next season she presented all the sonatas and recorded them for American Columbia. Now that sonata cycle is available again as a 4-CD box set. Reviewing an earlier reissue, ClassicsToday wrote: “Kraus is all passion and drama Her nervous energy always enlivens rather than obliterates Mozart’s intentions It’s good to have these invigorating, often provocative performances available again.”
