Having read the review written by "Paracelsus1966" above (now below due to number of votes) I was moved to recount a small part of my experience with this wonderful music. After buying the 3LP box set I recorded it on to a cassette.
In the early 1970's I had a summer job at a café located in an historic park within an old court yard and its buildings. There were outside tables in the court yard. On Sunday mornings the café would be quiet and I would play "Lausanne March 20th 1973" and other pieces of music, it washing over the courtyard. Keith's solo piano music nearly always drew comments from customers who had sat in the court yard reading Sunday papers or books. It was a wonderfully relaxing place to take refreshments. It got to the point where people would come regularly on Sunday mornings for refreshments and specifically ask to hear the final passage from the Lausanne concert. The last 22 minutes of this work is truly beautiful. On some occasions once the piece had finished the courtyard would empty.
I recall the pleasure I got from knowing how much these strangers were enjoying the music which I loved so much and am still moved by today.
