• Our series of historic radio recordings from Russian archives has proved very popular all over the world. Many people have chosen performance over recording quality. – which, when necessary, we have improved optimally. – Thus allowing themselves the infinite joy of listening to legendary performers.

• The musicians in this large set are all (living) legends indeed: pianists, Sviatoslav Richter, Emil Gilels, Lazar Berman, Evgeny Kissin; violinists David Oistrakh, Leonid Kogan, Viktor Tretiakov and Gidon Kremer; cellists Rostropovich and Daniel Shafran. Solo works, chamber music and works with orchestra are included.

• The recordings of lesser-known and hardly ever heard repertoire are a definite additional bonus of this series. The list of mainly Russian composers comprises such names as Catoire, Medtner, Kazhlaev, and Vladigerov.

• This 100 CD set is combination of previously issued sets, with the exception of the recordings of Gidon Kremer. Simultaneously with this 100 CD box we separately issue a set of 10 CD’s by this violinist.

• A great opportunity to acquire an valuable collection of historic material in one purchase.

Goldstar Value

What I expected was what collectors had come to tolerate of recordings from the former Soviet Union – sodden, heavy, and lacking in articulate sound. What you instead get is crisp, clear, and well defined sound. The transfer are first rate, and the source material must have from original tapes long guarded in Soviet vaults. Other reasons to buy are the parade of classical performers represented on these disks – performers such as Gilels, Richter, Rostropovich, Oistrakh, Kissin, Kramer, etc. While not all performances rank as best in class, nevertheless, the overall quality is very, very good. The composers and works represented cover a broad spectrum. As an added bonus, you get to hear performers virtually unknown in the West, such as Tretiakov and Shafran, who should have been heard. You will not be disappointed – buy!
