Notes & Reviews:

Spanning over three decades of recording and featuring some of Gilels' favorite works to perform, this comprehensive set offers a fascinating glimpse into a musician who was just as comfortable playing Bach as he was interpreting the modern masters of the keyboard. Full of refined yet powerful perfor- mances, it is a valuable addition to Brilliant Classics' celebrated Russian Archives set.

BBC Music Magazine, September 2012
A towering giant of unsurpassed delicacy and grace, Gilels was consummate both in technique and interpretative insight. His range and tonal palette are staggering, uniting authority with spontaneity.
