How it used to be

The best possible transfers of performances from 1917 to 1950 by pianists of great individuality. Chopin as he is never played today. Virtuosity at the service of poetry and drama. Also beautiful presentation: 4 CDs in a CD-size hardback book. Five hours of Chopin, and not a dud or dull moment. Every Chopin lover should have this set.
