This set features every single (known) composition by the great Hungarian master Béla Bartók. From the orchestral works and the choral works to the piano works and the chamber works: Everything is here, including very rare works never before recorded.< Although there are certainly superior performances of singular works, the set, as a whole, is very near a definitive presentation of Bartók’s output. Another bonus is that, as far as I can tell, all of the music is performed by Hungarian orchestras and musicians, so you’ll get a very authentic Hungarian ‘sound’. Especially good is the choral works and piano works, I think. The set also comes with extensive liner notes to each work, and texts to all of the choral works.

Summing up, this set is a must-have for the die-hard Bartók fan.
