"Kennedy being Kennedy, he allows himself a degree of improvisatorial licence here and there at which some might raise an eyebrow but which to me seem idiomatic, spontaneous and pleasing. Indeed it is difficult not to like the entire disc. Kennedy makes a wonderful sound and seems genuinely thrilled by the challenge of getting his fingers around the notes. There’s a sureness about his approach, a swaggering certitude in tone, articulation, phrasing that is hard to resist, and nothing about his playing is bland. He is partnered more than ably by Albrecht Mayer, and the conductorless strings of the Berlin Philharmonic make a rich but never swamping sound."

I downloaded the entire selection on offer.June 11, 2012By Thomas K. (Los Alamitos, CA)See All My Reviews"I recently purchased the latest Apple TV to connect with my 55-inch TV and sound system. I do not have cable and do not watch TV. However, this set-up is ideal for playing music. I could not resist the offer that was made by ArkivMusic to acquire some good recordings at a most reasonable price. Also, downloading is much easier for someone who is as lazy and time-limited as myself than purchasing corresponding or similar CDs and manually transferring the tracks to iTunes on my Mac. Therefore, I purchased the entire collection on offer. I have not had time to preview the entire offering; however, I am quite pleased with what I have enjoyed. I also use Apple's Match. Thank you ArkivMusic for making such a collection available. Greatly appreciated."Report Abuse
