Notes & Reviews:

The New Collectors Edition (original US release 3/30/2010) continues with ten new releases, many of which are appearing at budget price for the first time. These classic performances are truly the cream of the crop and the definitive recordings every collector should have. On this specially-priced 8-CD set Zoltan Kocsis performs the complete solo piano music of his fellow Hungarian, Bela Bartok. Completed in 2001, these critically acclaimed, definitive performances are the benchmark against which all others are considered. "Kocsis penetrates to the very centre or soul of this music" - The Penguin Guide to CDs
