To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Having listened to my grandson(10) playing some Bartok pieces taught to him by his Hungarian pianist mother, I thought I would buy this at such a bargain price....even if my life (patience?) my not last long enough to do more than sample this massive but invaluable collection.
Bartok is unfamiliar territory for me musically and so this boxed set was purchased as something to sample and explore over the coming weeks and months. Some of the pieces are far more accessible than others... it will be an adventure.
It would be wrong of me to comment on the playing and interpretation because of this unfamiliarity, but I suspect that these recordings by Zoltan Kocsis will/have become the benchmark for these pieces.
