It's great to have this very important set of the piano concertos back in a "Double Decca", though it's not discounted very much.  Still, it's worth the price for these elegant, authentic performances.

Lionel Salter's review in Gramophone, May 1992:

"This kaleidoscopic construction is colourful, often fascinating, and the sheer prodigality of his invention and his colossal energy, with extravagant textures and instrumentation, are extremely striking; but after a while, as with the gambols of a high-spirited puppy, one can't help wishing for more orderliness and less strenuous exuberance."
