    No, by virtue of not even being aware it existed. Thanks for the tip, George!

    No problem. There is an earlier recording as well, but I've read from a trusted source that the later one is better.

    Not exactly audio system demo material, although it's perfectly listenable, but the performance is excellent.

    There are mono and stereo versions conducted by Stravinsky for Columbia. Also highly worth listening to would be Ansermet’s recordings along with Bernstein. Just a few-there are many others out there which I have not heard. Edit: Rozhdestvensky and Svetlanov both conducted it. I don’t have the Rozhdestvensky in my collection( yet!).

    Can you tell me if the set comes in one fatboy case? I am trying to get an idea how much room I need for it on the shelf.

    Yes, it is one fat plastic case. approx 7/8 inches wide. Nearly one inch wide with the paper case cover.

    Hi, last night I did some digging on Amazon and scared up a used copy of the Stravinsky stereo recording, now duly ordered. Thanks for the tip!

    I also ordered a recording of Biber (Heinrich Ignaz Franz von, not Justin!) oddities played by a group called Acronym. I'd heard part of a battle piece on the radio and wanted to hear the rest plus the other odds and ends on the disc.

    I need to revisit this pianist's work. I have the big EMI set, Which I assume contains all of the performances you listed above.

    I like his Chopin a lot, but that box has so many goodies that I'd love to check out. Beethoven, Mozart, Bartok, Scriabin...

    Judging by your avatar, I assume you have the big EMI box?
