Notes & Reviews:

"This has been a series remarkable for the excellence of its presentation, transfers and documentation. One of the most superior of its qualities has been its propensity to dig up previously unpublished recordings and it does so again... All three volumes are essential fare for the Medtner collector, which I think goes without saying. But the discs have a constituency far beyond that - they are profoundly important documents of a great executant-composer. Barrie Martyn's annotations and the full recording details cap a vital series of discs." -MusicWeb
