Quote from: Todd on May 04, 2007, 06:01:35 AMThere aren't very many complete sets available (and Brendel plays only the first two "years"), but the Berman set is superb. Jorge Bolet's incomplete recording (the first two years, plus a bit) is likewise superb, but I believe it is only available in the box of all his Decca Liszt recordings. Nicholas Angelich has recorded a complete set for Mirare, but I've not yet heard it.
Quote from: Don on May 04, 2007, 06:07:13 AMBerman's my favorite, and I also enjoy Ciccolini, Bolet and Jando. On the Brendel set, Kocsis plays the 3rd year. I also have the Angelich but haven't opened it yet.

Quote from: Lethe on May 04, 2007, 08:39:03 AMI'm another who likes the Bolet - it's not ideal being part of a larger box, but that box is excellent (and well priced). I don't like the Berman quite as much, but can't pinpoint exactly why :S Both are excellent (can't make comparisons to others, as they are my only two) and will not disappoint whichever you choose IMHO, but I guess if you want all of them complete, Bolet isn't an option, making the Berman self-recommending
Quote from: marvinbrown on May 04, 2007, 08:54:04 AM I welcome any preference GMG members have. I am always open to new ideas and opinions. Yes I would like a complete set, but if another incomplete set with stellar reviews should rear its head then by all means I am interested...no reason to have just 1 complete recording. marvin
