Glad I bought it,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: John Ogdon: Legendary British Virtuoso (Audio CD)
This is not Ogdon's complete recorded legacy on HMV - there's a 2-CD set of Scriabin, for a start, which isn't included, and at least a couple of rarities from the 'Pianistic Philosophies' LP box are missing, - but it's a substantial collection. The 17CDs are very well filled.
If you're already an Ogdon fan, all you'll really want to know here is that the transfers to CD have been very well done: sound is good throughout. If you're not familiar with this extraordinary pianist's recordings, this is a very good place to start, as it presents a very wide range of repertoire in superb performances. Excellent value and highly recommended.

And none of the RCA recordings sadly .. Rachmaninov Sonatas and Hammerklavier.

This is an EMI box and RCA is owned by Sony, not EMI, so it's not so strange the RCA recordings are not included.
