RE: CD-Only Box Set of Mercury Living Presence; $99 for 50 CDs

How the mighty have fallen!

I was shocked last month when Classic FM magazine included a double set of the Dorati/Minneapolis 1812/Capriccio Italien, as well as the Cliburn/Kondrashin Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1 - iconic recordings indeed! - as the FREE supplement CD attached to the magazine. PLUS, they threw in the Ferras/Silvestri Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto for good measure - but this interesting performance includes more cuts than even the normal Auer cuts we sometimes hear (certainly, this is the most cut performance I've ever heard!). As one of the posters on Amazon states, the performance "is all over the place & hacked up"!
