[Note: I am this user's son because I'm the big Chopin fanatic in the family.]

This boxed set is simply wonderful; fifteen straight disks of young pianists going at it, doing their very best to play the very best Chopin. If you are looking for uniqueness and variety and firmly established interpretations, maybe this isn't necessarily the best product for you; many pieces, which come from a standard repetoire (you can see the full "you must play" and "you must choose from" lists at the Chopin Competition website) are repeated again and again (for example, the same concerto, no. 1 in e minor, is included four times across a few disks) by different contestants in this prestigious competition. It can be a bit repetitive even if each of them has a unique and interesting intepretation.

Nonetheless, for those looking to jump-start a budding Chopin collection, this can be really a wonderful item to purchase; although there are redundant tracks, the sheer volume of music provided by 15 disks is hard to brush off. There can be little to complain about in terms of recording quality for the casual music-lover (my ear is not good, but there was nothing glaringly wrong), aside from the stray, infrequent, can't-hold-it-until-intermission cough.

Here's the thing - if you ARE a newcomer to the world of Chopin, this may not necessarily be for you. You've probably heard people sing praises for Pollini, Horowitz, Argerich, Zimerman, etc. ; if you want mature, full-fledged interpretations of firmly established credit, you don't want to start here. You have up-and-coming, still learning pianists like (of course!) Rafal Blechacz, Nobuyuki Tsujii, and Dong-Hyek Lim and Dong-Min Lim.
