Notes & Reviews:

"These recordings were made in the early digital age: 1982 and 1984... These are all excellent performances, centrist in the good sense of the word. They don't strive for virtuosity by playing movements as fast as possible; nor do they search blindly for hidden depths or brand-new approaches. I am also happy to report that the hardness and glare we find on many early digital recordings is absent here. You can pick this Vox Box up at an appealing price, and you can't go wrong." -ARG
