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.

Code of the Street: Decency, Violence, and the Moral Life of the Inner City

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting read......, July 1, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Interesting overview of the 'moral development' of some of America's inner city residents. Anderson presents many examples and his background as a sociologist shows clearly in his writing. I found this book referenced in a juvenile delinquency text I was using - the information presented here was helpful in understanding some criminal behavior.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you are a fan...., June 21, 2014
Lovecraft takes the reader into other worlds like few others have been able to. His material is horrifying, dark, psychologically thrilling, historic, mysterious, other-worldly and beautiful. His use of language and writing style grips his readers like a vice -- The downside is when you read this collection, you will see just how lacking other authors are when compared with this literary giant. Library of America has many great editions -- and this one is certainly among the best of them! FANTASTIC!

This collection includes the Berlin Philharmonic, the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Mozart Orchestra, Argerich, Kovacevich, Abbado and many other top-notch talents. DG has put together one of the best box sets for those who want some classical music in their music collection. Excellent bargain for what you get! Guaranteed you will enjoy this - Thanks to DG!
