Hi Dmitri. I don't know anything about Holst box sets. I have the pieces I like gathered from here and there. The likely problem with a box set is that it will include a lot of music of little interest, since much of Holst's music is like that (IMO I hasten to add!)

I saw a Gustav Holst box set, but read many borderline or bad reviews of it. What do you think?

François-André Philidor
Born: 7 September 1726 - Dreux - France

From WIKI:
".... (also) regarded as the best chess player of his age; his book Analyse du jeu des Échecs was considered a standard chess manual for at least a century, and a well-known chess opening and a checkmate method are both named after him."
