One of the blessings of recorded sound is that it gives today‘s audiences opportunities to hear great masters of the past. And Arturo Toscanini surely was a master — perhaps the most towering Maestro of the 20th century. Since the Toscanini Collection was first released on compact disc approximately a decade ago, major innovations have occured in sound restoration. Although the recordings in that collection were issued utilizing the best techniques of the time, it is now possible to go back to the original sources and make more musical and accurate remasterings. The recordings in this new series were made using 20-bit recording technology, UV22 Super CD Encoding, Cello and Studer tape systems and were processed from the original analog source tape masters at the BMG/RCA Studios in New York. The improvement in sound clearly justifies a new release of these unique interpretations.

Staples of the violin repertoire, the three violin sonatas of Johannes Brahms, project three entirely different characters: the G major Sonata's solemn, lonely beauty; the exuberance and freedom of the A major Sonata; and the aggressive, agitated D minor Sonata. As much as the sonatas contrast with one another, so to does Anne-Sophie Mutter's playing of them. Her vision throughout this Deutsche Grammophon collaboration with pianist Lambert Orkis seems to be built on creating broad distinctions in dynamic range, tempo, and tone color.

The world was hardly clamoring for another recording of Vivaldi's Four Seasons violin concertos, but the Australian Chamber Orchestra has evolved into one of the world's top concert attractions, and it's natural that their fans would want to hear them in this ubiquitous work. Violin soloist Richard Tognetti plays a 1743 Guarneri instrument with a powerfully flashy tone, and he gets a large variety of sounds from it. These are complemented by the inclusion in the booklet of the four sonnets included by Vivaldi in the score (and possibly written by the composer himself). This is always desirable, for the Four Seasons are programmatic in a way that's hard to pick up from the music alone, and the inclusion of the texts is remarkably rare…

This set is a remarkable bargain, containing all of Brahms's solo piano music, including such chips from his workshop as cadenzas for other composers' concertos and a series of strictly mechanical piano studies that nobody will want to listen through. No matter. Idil Biret has a firm grasp of Brahms's idiom, and she plays with insight and passion throughout the set. Although she doesn't startle with her virtuosity, she handles the considerable technical demands of the music with great confidence.
