Superlative performances in recordings which are very good for their age. The Mozart concerti are a relevation, but some of the earliest recordings, such as the Granados, may take a few hearings to be convincing. These commercial recordings have much clearer sound than some cheap sets which include radio broadcasts - a modern listener does not need to make many allowances for this set, which stands alongside the very finest performances of most of the works included.

An infuriating mix of the great and the unlistenable. In particular the version of Schumann's Carnaval is extraordinary - quite unbelievably slow and leaden. Compare with the same pianist's versions on Testament and (Germany only?) DG (once a BBC LP) - among the greatest - with this simply awful version! Barely fit to be used as a coaster. Yet elsewhere the Ravel and (especially) Rachmaninov fourth concertos are simply wonderful (if you can tolerate in the slow movement of the Ravel the left hand before right mannerism Michelangeli so often employed). Then there's the famously great but incomplete and re-ordered Brahms Paganini variations. A crazy mixture that's hard to rate with one assessment. Can we have a *****/* option, please?

I was not a Michelangeli fan 20 Nov. 2009
By glezzery - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have no idea where the previous reviewer gets their ideas.
I know that i have never heard the Haydn and Mozart played with more sparkle than here.
The Brahms Paganini Variations is amazing, the best i have heard.
Granted, you might not like BACH played like this.
His Debussy is with Gieseking, unparalleled.
The Schumann is second only to Richter and Kempff.

This a great 20 dollar 4 disk buy.
And i was not up for Mich., from his rep as a prima donna.
Well, he was a GREAT pianist and this is a sure inroad into his art.

Michelangeli recordings from his prime 21 Dec. 2013
By Anapanasati - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Michelangeli's Ravel concerto, Bach/Busoni, Scarlatti, and other performances from this era shine like fire. Perfection doused in white heat. We also get his refined Haydn and strange Shumann (I much prefer his DG Shumann!) from the 1970's. Buy this set and listen to the three composers I mentioned in the first sentence and I bet very highly that you will not be disappointed.

Michelangeli 15 Oct. 2013
By ConTroppo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This box contains the performances of Michelangeli in his prime.
Everything except CD 3 is when he was younger and applied more velocity and fire to his interpretations and they are legendary.
A wonderful way to get them all in the same place at a cheap price.

this needs praise 3 Oct. 2013
By Justin Carter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
this box set comes with performances you will never forget, Michelangeli is giving you the opportunity to ride the magic fire dragon I call a recording of his playing.

Average (or below) performer and selection 30 Jan. 2009
By Douglas Thorpe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Look elsewhere if you want the best (or even several better) recordings of the selections in this compilation. Michelangeli's technique is frequently idiosyncratic and often does not capture even a reasonable extension of the composer's work. Plus, the selections are limited. But, the price is right if you want a sampling of Michelangeli's work. Many of the new EMI Icon series programs are terrific (see Richter, Solomon, Brain and Cortot, although a limited selection because he did not record much for EMI), but this one is by far the weakest of the group.
