But this and you get ten discs of simply magical pianism from one of the greatest pianists of our time. Just listen to Lupu's sense of touch and you know that this is something really special. The Schubert in particular is superb, as is the Schumann - full of life and fantasy. Of course, there are other ways of playing this music, especially the Beethoven, but Lupu's way is one that will bring immense satisfaction. One oddity is the performance of the Beethoven concerto as the box says 'The Solo Recordings.' Maybe it is put in as a filler. Th performance is certainly worth hearing as a bonus.
