Wonderful collection of the greatest music ever written.
on November 1, 2016
Listening to the complete Bach has always been a bucket list item for me and buying such a large collection, at such a price, one expects not the greatest performances. And to tell the truth, the first Brandenburg Concerto on disc one started out a little rough. But after that shaky start, pure bliss since then. Many great, if not transcendent, performances, performed on period instruments. So beware, you get harpsichord rather than piano. This becomes an asset as I re-fell in love with the sound of the harpsichord and pieces I was used to hearing Gould play.
Can't imagine a better gift for a music lover. 142 discs will keep anyone occupied for quiet awhile.
