Ever since its opening night in May 1891 Carnegie Hall has held sway as the undisputed shrine of classical music in America. It was and remains the essential venue for all great artists. To celebrate Carnegie Hall's 125th anniversary Sony Classical in cooperation with Carnegie Hall is proud to present an extraordinary new 43-CD box set of treasures from the RCA and Columbia archives, Great Moments at Carnegie Hall, featuring live recordings from many of the world's greatest musicians. This unique deluxe edition contains a complete previously unreleased piano recital by Sviatoslav Richter and is accompanied by a 104-page coffee table book which contains notes by Carnegie Hall archivist Gino Francesconi as well as many facsimile documents and rare photographs.

The Guardian, 8th May 2016
The choice may look like a box of bonbons - it is - but it's fascinating as a swift if slightly jerky gallop through performance styles and big stars of the past (mainly) half century.
