mark, hope your expecations aren't too high. The earlier discs are just average (sound v. good) and "light on". B

First I disagree with Brenda's assessment of the earlier discs. Second I love this recording. I am not so much a piano guy, so I played it (the Tempest) for a piano loving friend, he was as impressed as I: "As impressive as her double forte's are, her triple pianissimos are incredible." and "I've known this sonata for 30 years and this is the best recording of it I ever heard!"

That was just one guy's opinion however. I am relatively new to the work, strangely since it is obviously an incredible work of genius, and I have actually been around for awhile.

Anyway it would surprise me if anyone were to purchase this and later regret it, for it absolutely lifts my spirits every time I hear it. Stunning recording!
