Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Mozart concertos are the main glory here, for me, each of them presented differently often with various conductors and orchestras working intimately together. The Beethoven is strong and decisive up there the best. Her Schubert I am not so fond of and would prefer Radu Lupu or Brendel, but all round a jolly good buy.

3.0 out of 5 stars One for the specialist, 29 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Marvellous strong performances but the balance between orchestra and soloist is all wrong, the recording coarse and the Russian audience in the Brahms pretty impossible - but if you're a real fan of Kogan then you'll want it.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent rather underestimated set., 29 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent as a complementary series to set against the Prague String Quartet recordings, the letter rather more athletic and full bodied, the Stamitz more precise, clear. careful but never dull and with a real Czech sense of melody and inflection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb performances and the recording as good as it can get even after all these years, 14 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Superb performances and the recording as good as it can get even after all these years. Legends that live up to all the praise. Especially good to hear the earlier quartets played with such affection and insight.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Weber: Piano Concertos (Audio CD)
Bright, sparky performances of very music which surely used to be played more often when I was a lad. Interesting to hear them clear and sharp rather than in a rather overly romantic manner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent if rather random choice of pieces, 14 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent if rather random choice of pieces, not only from Wagner. I enjoyed just listening through a whole disc at a sitting. And a marvellous voice!

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Amazing Mr Blunden [DVD] (DVD)
A failed attempt to repeat the success of the Railway Children: a bad choice of story and a rather mannered and clumsy imitation, even to the very last scene.
