 A true bargain August 28, 2013 By Gerald C. (Greenville, NC) See All My Reviews "Kempff plays beautifully. The music is to be enjoyed rather than used as an exercise to show off technique or an opportunity to demonstrate the artist's "unique" understanding of the composer. The listener is invited to join Kempff in the enjoyment of the music, and it is a pleasure." Report Abuse
 Perfection January 29, 2013 By Huey P. (Dallas, TX) See All My Reviews "This Wilhelm Kempff collection is a study in perfection. It is a treasure for any Kempff admirer." Report Abuse
 Genius at Work March 31, 2012 By Joseph Vann (Madison, NJ) See All My Reviews "I regret I never heard Kempff perform in life but this beautiful collection nearly makes up for it. So many composers are included, and so much of their work is here: Beethoven complete sonatas, etc. But it is the playing which keeps you spellbound. I always enjoyed Arthur Rubenstein, who was known for his "romantic" style of playing and had long thought Kempff to be a stogy academic - How pleased I was to see (or rather, hear) how wrong I was! I'm a long ways from hearing everything in the set, but I haven't heard a note I didn't like yet! And since Arkiv probably won't pay me a commission, I won't bother to point out what an incredible bargain the set is! " Report Abuse
