Classical Box Set Bargain: Murray Perahia: The First 40 Years

512YSdnr2fL._SL500_AA300_.jpgI reviewed this set a couple of years ago; 73 CDs of Murray Perahia’s piano recordings, which, at the time, cost €115, was a great bargain back then. But the price has plummeted, and you can get it now on Amazon.com for about $55, and on Amazon UK for £84 (less from third-party sellers).

This is a no-brainer. Even if you only want Perahia’s stunning Mozart piano concerto set, or his late-career Bach recordings, you can’t beat this price. This set is full of great stuff, and is an attractive box set as well, with an informative book, and a handful of DVDs.
