I wonder why this set has not been reviewed here. In my view this is one of the very best SACDs Linn has released.

For a quick taste of the excellence play the Largo, e piano from concerto No. 4 and listen for the harpsichord chords appearing to float over the string music. It's absolutely gorgeous.

Highly recommended.
