Just curious. I wonder how many of our members acquired the big Arrau Edition from Decca?

Sorry, Lance, looks like nobody sprang for this one. I'm saving my big-box cash for the Szell box, due out on August 10th. May also buy the DeLarrocha set as well, as a birthday present for my lovely spouse!

Happy Independence Day to you and yours!

I got it, but with my reviewer's hat on, so I didn't have to pay. I probably wouldn't have, as I already had a good proportion of the material. And I have always found Arrau among the most stately and magisterial of pianists, but not the most intimate. But I think he plays with utter integrity, and any interpretation he offers is serious and worth consideration.
