VariousJanos Starker – The Mercury Living Presence Recordings (10CD set) ... CD
Mercury, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 10CD ... $53.99 59.99
An amazing package of work from one of the greatest cellists of the 20th Century – a musician whose dark tones and sense of presence really pushed the instrument forward during the postwar years – most famously on these classic recordings for the Mercury Living Presence series! The special box features ten albums, each with their original cover art – brilliantly recorded sessions that still stand as holy grails for classical music collectors after all these years – really given a special treatment on CD. The set features some great solo and sonata passages – on which Starker's genius really comes through – plus some larger orchestral performances as well. Includes Bach's Suites For Unaccompanied Cello, Bach 3 Sonatas with Gyorgy Sebok, Italian Cello Sonatas with Stephen Swedish, further sonatas with Gyorgy Sebok, Brahms Cello Sonatas 1 & 2 with Sebok, Mendelssohn Cello Sonata 2 and Chopin Cello Sonata with Sebok, Dvorak Cello Concerto and Bruch's Kol Nidrei with Antal Dorati & London Symphony Orchestra, Schumman Cello Concerto and Lalo Cello Concerto with Stanislaw Skrowaczekwski & LSO, and Tchaikovsky Rococo Variations and Saint Saens Cello Concerto 1 with Dorati & LSO.

Decca, Late 50s/1960s/1970s/1980s/Early 90s. New Copy 49CD ... $123.99 139.99
A huge legacy of work from one of the greatest classical pianists of the 20th century – the complete Decca, Philips, and Deutsche Grammophon recordings of Sviatoslav Richter – brought together in a massive set that also includes two bonus CDs as well! The bulk of the set – 34 CDs – includes solo performances – Richter's transcendent readings of works by Bach, Beethoven, Schubert, Shostakovich, Scriabin, Chopin, Schumann, Brahms, Liszt, and others – including his famous Sofia Recital from 1958 – with all the music brought together on extended CDs that often carry two to three albums' worth of material on each disc – all annotated with a booklet in both German and English. Next are some wonderful chamber music recordings – 7 CDs' worth of smaller ensemble pieces by Brahams, Dvorak, Franck, Bartok, Britten, and others, including collaborations with Rostropovich and the Borodin Quartet – and the set is completed by 8 more CDs, with both concerto recordings, and a few lieder recordings with singers who include Peter Schreier and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau. Package also includes 2 bonus CDs – with works by Mozard, Schubert, and Debussy – done with Benjamin Britten. CD

✨✧ VariousDeutsche Grammophon – The Originals – Legendary Recordings (50 CD set) ... CD
Deutsche Grammophon (Germany), 1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s. New Copy 50CD ... Out Of Stock
Stunning sounds from this legendary label – and a sweet little package that makes you feel like you've just found a stash of mint-condition classical LPs! The collection brings together essential recordings from the catalog of Deutsche Grammophon – solo performances, full symphonies, and a few operas as well – all presented in little 5" record-style sleeves, in a massive box with a special 100 page book of notes as well. Performances here are all by the legends of the label – Oistrach, Bohm, Karajan, Kubelik, Fischer-Dieskau, Anda, Mutter, Fricsay, Rostropovich, Gilels, and many others – with composers who include Chopin, Liszt, Beethoven, Mozart, Orff, Ravel, Strauss, Schubert, Wagner, and many others. The material is about as classic as you can get for DG – nothing too outside the box – but together, the whole thing makes for a really wonderful collection – and a great price for so much music, especially since many CDs feature extra material too. Also includes two recordings new to the series – Maurizio Pollini's performance of Chopin's Etudes – and Brahms Cello Sonatas from Rostropovich and Serkin. CD
