 Excellent Collection February 9, 2018 By Francisco R. Moya Huff (Guaynabo, PR) See All My Reviews "I was looking for Bach music.Mr. Perahia piano playing was familiar because I own the Mozart Collection he recorded and have enjoyed the same for over a year. He had recorded Bach Music that I do not have but as I kept reviewing the offers this collection came up and it had a whole bunch of great recordings including the Bach Music. Everything about this collection is excellent. The recordings are clear, the playing is great, the variety is excellent and the price is outstanding. If you want a excellent solo and orchestra piano music collection with great variety and at a good price you can't go wrong." Report Abuse
