Wasn't some or all of the RAI stuff in those Aura/Ermitage/Documents boxes?
Struck by the sounds before the sun,
I knew the night had gone.
The morning breeze like a bugle blew
Against the drums of dawn.
(Bob Dylan)

Still a favourite.  A true master.

The Germans, who make doctrines out of everything, deal with music learnedly; the Italians, being voluptuous, seek in it lively, though fleeting, sensations; the French, more vain than perceptive, manage to speak of it wittily; and the English pay for it . . . - Stendhal

I remember comparing the Rach 4th with Ashkenazy/Previn, and, a bit surprisingly, I then found Ashkenazy too sentimental in the slow movement, much preferring Michelangeli.
