Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition etc. - Reiner        (8 of 13 found this review helpful)
  Review by flyingdutchman October 12, 2004

I can quite honestly say that I disagree most competely with the previous review. This is an absolutely vital must-buy for anyone wanting to hear how these should sound.

Handel: La Maga Abbandonata - Curtis        (4 of 4 found this review helpful)

Tchaikovsky & Rachmaninov: Piano Concertos - Van Cliburn        (5 of 7 found this review helpful)
  Review by sgb October 9, 2004

This has always been one of my two or three favorite performances of the Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto. I have owned a copy of the original Shaded Dog vinyl pressing for more than 25 years, but never felt motivated to buy any of the CD reissues. Van Cliburn does such a great job as featured soloist ... more
