Classic Archives: Collector’s Edition - Ensembles

Blu-ray Euroarts: 3073994 (14 hours)



That's right - 14 hours of recordings on one disc for approximately £39 ($59)!. I cannot allow a reviewer to be tied up for 14 hours just to get a review of one disc but I thought it important to bring this disc to your attention. It demonstrates the amazing capacity of Blu-ray being used here imaginatively and to the full. So this is not a review but just a marker of the existence of this issue.
