That's three hours of sublime music, played and engineered to the highest standards, for little more than you'd pay for a single fullpriced issue at a high street retailer . . . these firmly focused and supremely poised 1988¿98 readings are of a calibre way beyond mere 'budget' status. Any student getting to know this music for the first time through this set will be fortunate indeed.
