Description: Needless to say, this series is not coming out in numerical order and is front-loading the existing piano recordings Kocsis made in his youth in the 1980s and 90s. But the notes are among the best you'll find and, upon completion, this will surely be one of the monuments of Bartók scholarship and performance. Zoltán Kocsis (piano). Original 1997, 2000 and 2001 Philips releases.
