 Great Intro to Chopin February 24, 2015 By Mark S. (Fort Mill, SC) See All My Reviews "I must confess that I bought this set of disks because, save for the two piano concertos and the nocturnes, I was unfamiliar with Chopin's oeuvre. It was such an outstanding value, plus Ted Libby wrote that if there is one sure bet in the piano repretoire, it would be Arthur Rubinstein. So on my long commute to work, I have been acquainting myself with Chopin's ballades, polonaises, etudes and preludes. I grade it four stars because of the sound of the 60's recording vintage. The older technology lacks brilliance and depth, especially the monoaural recordings of the preludes that date back to the late 40's. All of it is beautifully played and executed." Report Abuse
 Rubinstein and Chopin February 24, 2015 By Jordan Davies (Huntington, VT) See All My Reviews "Rubinstein is brilliant as always. A wonderful set of recordings." Report Abuse
 Creme de la Creme !!! October 9, 2014 By J. Fitzgerald (San Francisco, CA) See All My Reviews "While a young man I had the good fortune to hear both Rubinstein and Horowitz in recital. They were both stupendous! For most composers' works I'd opt for Horowitz, but not for Chopin. Hearing elegant, suave, rakish Rubinstein play Chopin was like a glimpse of musical heaven - almost a sacramental experience! These recordings are a treasure, and an incredible bargain at that!"
