Excellent value, refreshing interpretations 2 Nov. 2006
By R. Gregory Capaldini - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Philips has again come up with a budget 4-disc anthology that's hard to pass up -- five hours of music at under $8 per disc (less if you buy it used or on sale), all of it in excellent sound. Zoltan Kocsis has enough technique to play exactly as he wants, and his interpretations are refreshingly intelligent and never unduly showy. These recordings were made over a 14-year period, but the personality of the artist is consistent throughout. Other pianists have done great work with Debussy, and indeed, Philips's own Mitsuko Uchida did Debussy's Etudes so splendidly that the company evidently chose to omit these pieces here. No matter; if you're like me and had never heard "Hommage a Haydn" or "Ballade slave" before, you'll get to know these and a dozen other individual pieces along with the complete Preludes, Images, Arabesques, Children's Corner, Pour le piano, Estampes, and Suite bergamasque. Ivan Fischer and the Budapest Festival Orchestra join in for the quasi-concerto Fantasie and for Ravel's two Concertos as a bonus. These last two really sparkle, and now I'm wondering what I've been missing by not putting a trip to Budapest on my wish list.

A Treasure Set of CDs 6 Feb. 2011
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Zoltán Kocsis displays his superior gift with interpreting the French repertoire on this amazing four disc box set. The first three discs are devoted tot he piano music of Claude Debussy, many of which are rarely played and even more rarely recorded. And on the fourth disc he offers Debussy's 'Fantaisie for piano & orchestra' and follows that with the tow Ravel concerti for piano - the 'Piano Concerto in D major (for the left hand)' and the 'Piano Concerto in G major' from which the sublime 'Adagio assai' movement was so gracefully used in the film BIUTIFUL. In these works he collaborates with Iván Fischer conducting the Budapest Festival Orchestra. The entire set is exquisitely performed, but it is the Ravel performances that will capture the listener's attention.

There is little information about what is included on these four discs which sell for such a bargain price from Amazon and it is fitting to list the full contents:
The Debussy solo works are Préludes (12) for piano, Books I and II, Images (3), for piano, Sets I and II, Images inédites (3), for piano, D'un cahier d'esquisses, L'isle joyeuse, Arabesque, for piano No. 1 in E major, Arabesque, for piano No. 2 in G major, Hommage à Joseph Haydn, Rêverie, Page d'album (Pièce pour l'oeuvre du "Vêtement du blessé"), Berceuse héroïque for piano, Children's Corner, suite for piano, Pour le piano, suite for piano, Estampes, for piano, La plus que lente, waltz for piano, Nocturne, for piano, Valse romantique, for piano, Ballade (slave), for piano, Le petit nègre, cakewalk for piano, Elégie, for piano, Morceau de Concours (Pièce), for piano, Mazurka, Tarantelle styrienne (Danse), for piano, and the Suite bergamasque.

This is a Boxed Set of brilliantly played music by Debussy and Ravel by a pianist regarded by many as one of the finest on the concert stage. Grady Harp, February 11

Best digital recording... 24 Oct. 2010
By DaddyD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Versions of these pieces abound, and while I wouldn't want to take anything away from past masters from the earlier part of the 20th century, I believe that the magic of this music only increases with digital recording, and in Zocsis's hands this happens...a worthy investment that you will listen to and enjoy often...

Some fine performances, but Kocsis is often more concerned with virtuosity than communication 25 Dec. 2013
By The Man in the Hathaway Shirt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
...For example, the second Prelude from Book I, Voiles, is given the most out-of-body reading here I've ever heard. Time seems to stop, barlines dissolve, and the music just flows, effecting the listener in ways that are hard to understand with the analytical brain. Some of the other shorter pieces are also outstanding. But Kocsis has some much technique that I feel that sometimes he breezes over music--maybe without even realizing it--and instead we don't get phrasing: again in Book I of the Preludes, La fille aux cheveux de lin is missing its charming hesitations, its innocence. There are plenty of other examples but comparing that one to readings by Cortot or Arrau shows what I mean. Similarly, in the larger-scale works--L'Isle joyeuse is an excellent example--the individual parts don't gel and build. You get the feeling he doesn't understand, or else fails to show, why this part sits next to that part, how it all works together. Listen to Horowitz's slam-bang live performance on Columbia/Sony from (I believe) Carnegie Hall to hear how this piece can be a real roller coaster. (Here it's more coaster than roller.) Similarly, in Children's Corner every note is perfectly played, and one gets the feeling Kocsis can play this in his sleep. And that's the problem: it sounds like he is. The innocence, reluctance of childhood and the pensive qualities of recollecting childhood are absent. The feeling of memory is totally absent. I get the feeling it never even occurred to the pianist to consider it.

The two concerti suffer here the most, where I feel Kocsis worries more about surface beauty and technique for technique's sake than he does phrasing, expression, depth. There's a distant, rushed gloss to it all, almost mechanical, Ravel dipped in caramel, as though the highest aim he had when sitting down at the bench was delivering a flawless, glossy performance. That he does. He has more technique than Gieseking...but overall I'd rather be listening to Gieseking, because he had more to say. The orchestra accompanying him in the concerti is pretty awful, too. I looked to see who it was and it turns out to be Ivan Fischer and the Budapest Festival Orchestra, who also do some of the most overrated, slickest Mahler I've ever heard. I don't understand the raves over those recordings either. I truly think for most people born today, slick sonics will catapult almost anything into the five-star category.
