5.0 out of 5 stars Arthur Rubinstein - The Complete Album Collection, 25 Dec 2011

This review is from: Arthur Rubinstein - The Complete Album Collection (Audio CD)
It is the Christmas present I have got for this year.I cannot wait for the boxing day and opened it this morning. Since then I have been sitting for the whole Christmas day listening to it. This box set has a great presentation to me. Sony, as you can see, changed the usual art work of the big box, as used for Glenn Gould, Horowitz and Heifetz, making it simple and elegant.

The big book, written in multi-language, is gorgeous. Again unlike the previous complete album collection, it size is four times bigger which makes a great pleasure to read. However, if you want to make references to the tracks, it can be a bit clumsy.

This box set not only has the entire RCA records, but also the early EMI records(CDs 1 - 14) and one from Decca (CD 138, Brahms Piano concerto no. 1 with Zubin Mehta), and so it is quite a very complete set. As for the sound quality, I do not have high end stereo, but they do sound good to me. And according to the big book, Sony had all remastered by the engineers of Rubinstein's SACD and XRCD collections.

The 2 DVDs has no surprise to me as I already have them, but the 3 bonus CDs are a real treasure. They were all recorded live from a series of recitals that the Masetro decided to impress the city, 10 recitals without a repeat repertoire within forty days! Although the sound quality of these bonus discs are not impressing, the performance are superb and astonishing.

It worth every penny I spent.
