 Building With Beethoven March 26, 2014 By bess holloway (Boulder, CO) See All My Reviews "When starting a basic library it's often necessary to economize in the process. But that doesn't mean compromising. This recording was part of my basic Beethoven set. I still play it and feel glad it was available at the right time. You'll enjoy this disc." Report Abuse
