 So Much Music! January 30, 2014 By bess holloway (Boulder, CO) See All My Reviews "I'm pleased to find that this set is still available in original form--so many other sets I know have been pulled apart and now cost twice as much. It was through these works that I came to appreciate the unique genius of Janacek. Buy it in a heartbeat!" Report Abuse
