I got this set at well below the RRP and I am well pleased with it.
All the CDs are first class in terms of recording and performance, and there are so many different composers and styles that it is impossible to be bored,it's like an audio-kaleidoscope, not least because of the consummate skill of Argerich, one minute full of barnstorming virtuosity (Liszt Sonata) then exquisite tenderness and contemplation (Ravel Ondine and Le gibet)Her dynamic range is unbelievable.
Martha Argerich's playing has even motivated me to listen to repertoire I have never previously enjoyed much, so there must be something really special about her performances!
Highly recommended, with just one caveat - it's a bit of a bind removing the CDs from their cardboard sleeves (but well worth the effort!)
