Notes & Reviews:

This collection features the best public performance recordings from Prades, in which Casals is joined by the violinists Menuhin, Szigeti, Grumiaux, Goldberg and Vegh; the pianists Cortot, Serkin, Horszowski, Kapell and Curzon; and a host of other illustrious instrumentalists. None of these performances appears on the recent Pearl collection of Prades and Perpignan performances which derive from the commercially issued without audience Columbia recordings. 8 CDs in this boxed set were previously released on Music & Arts CD sets 688 and 689 (no longer available), and 4 CDs, containing over 6 hours of music, have never before been released. This collection is eminently affordable: 12 CDs priced as 6 discs!
