While written in the 1960s to 1970s, many of the recordings mentioned, then in lps and tape, are now in cds and computer downloading. And the great performers, many of them now gone if not all [Colin Davis, Baremboin. Perlmann and Previn are still around] who recorded these classical music masterpieces, have passed the test of time. So the book is highly recommended to all classical music lovers who take this music very seriously, and passionately, like me.
