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. More than three decades after his tragically early death, Glenn Gould’s performances are still the standard by which every new recording of Bach’s keyboard works is judged. A new 4-CD Masters box gathers two classic Gould recordings from the 1970s: the French Suites, considered “one of the landmarks in the discography” (MusicWeb INTERNATIONAL), along with his “powerful and masterly” (BBC Music Magazine) interpretations of the English Suites.
