Notes & Reviews:

First Choice features top artists - in the first batch, Claudio Abbado, the Emerson String Quartet, Helene Grimaud, Herbert von Karajan, James Levine, Anna Netrebko, Itzahak Perlman, Trevor Pinnock, Gil Shaham, Bryn Terfel and Krystian Zimerman - performing great music in best-selling and benchmark recordings from the last 30 years.

The look is fresh, modern, easy to grasp: original album covers newly presented in a Polaroid-style frame, with series blurb on spine "Original Album Series". The Polaroid look is carried through in the booklet layout and forms the basis of the entire product image. Each release comes with new liner notes on the artist and recordings by expert authors and critics.

Gramophone, December 1994
Kissin is an extraordinarily aware musician ... his latest concerto disc is a continuous de-light, offering two of the most completely satisfying Prokofiev performances I have ever heard ... what Kissin and Abbado have to offer is certainly in the luxury class.

Gramophone, January 1990
Kissin is the kind of player who is worth hearing ... the Scriabin pieces give a taste of that.
