5.0 out of 5 stars Both sad and brutal accounts of the conflict...., April 29, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A sad reminder of the savageries of war. This book includes personal accounts, some graphic in their descriptions of events, as well as the author's insight into the events. Politkovskaya's writing often makes reference to the brutality and corruption of Russian soldiers during this conflict. The author was later shot and killed - also reminding us of how speaking out against others can have terrible consequences.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good overview..., March 24, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very good overview of the two separate (and violent) conflicts between these two nations. Gives a short background of the key individuals on both sides. Gives basically a timeline of the events as well. Not a lengthy, in-depth study, but if you are looking to have a better understanding of these events - this is a very good start. A relatively quick read at only about 80 + pages. Informative.

Great sound, great performances. Very underrated recording of the preludes. Why hasn't Nebolsin received more praise for his abilities?

This review is from: Volodos Plays Liszt (Audio CD)
All Hail the mighty Volodos - stunning to watch or listen to. Certainly among the giants of living pianists. Any recording you purchase of his will make your classical music collection instantly better. You can read all the reviews you want - but you would be better served by putting his cd in your stereo - sitting in a chair - and let your ears be amazed. This guy is a living legend!!! 100 stars !!!

These are some of the best piano concertos anywhere. Byron Janis's recordings of these are simply as good as everyone says. Brilliant, awesome, amazing, definitive, yes, yes.........Technically incredible, sound is terrific. Immediately add this to your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do not overlook this set !!!, August 19, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
You are likely one of two customers: 1) either looking to buy some Rachmaninoff to add to your collection, or 2) you own other recordings of these amazing concertos and want other pianist's interpretations. Either way, I assure you this is a great and complete set. Vasary is terrific - technically brilliant - a perfect blend with London's Symphony Orchestra. The playing is clear and precise - at times dazzling and other times gentle. The sound is crystal clear -- hats off to DG -- I have Janis's recording of these concertos also (some would say THE standard). I feel Vasary is in the same league as Janis - both are marvelous. Vasary has many other recordings that should not be overlooked. GREAT !!!!

Just as others have posted, this is an excellent collection by a sensational pianist. The sound is great and the selections show just some of the virtuosity Van Cliburn had. Terrific purchase.
