Forget this review: buy this set immediately

Amazon warns that reviews must be at least twenty words, so I’ll spin this out. If you’ve seen my other reviews, you’ll know I have no objection to writing long reviews.

This product needs no review. All you need to know is in the product description: 1) Heinz Holliger; 2) 10 discs. You yourself can figure out that this means approximately ten hours of breathtaking (no pun intended) phrasing, color and sound. Whether you’re one of Sir Thomas Beecham’s people who don’t like music but only the noise it makes, or whether you will actually listen to the artist’s interpretation, you will not regret owning this set.
