(4 out of 5 stars)
"I was not very familiar with Kogan before purchasing this set. Now I definitely have an appreciation for his art! The only reason I gave the collection 4 stars instead of 5 is that the cds are programmed very poorly; pieces are put onto the discs with no particular rhyme or reason and it does interfere with your enjoyment of the material to some degree. Of course most of us have cd players that can be programmed nowadays so at least you can get around that problem.
Nowhere on this page does Amazon list what pieces are included in the set, so here's a quick rundown:
Bach A minor concerto
B minor vln/keyboard sonata
Paganini caprices 9 and 23
Saint-Saens Intro and Rondo Capriccioso
Beethoven sonatas 9 and 10
Tchaikovsky concerto, valse-scherzo, and meditation
Vieuxtemps "Gretry" concerto
Sarasate Carmen Fantasy
Mozart Adagio in E
Beethoven concerto, romance in G, Turkish March
Kreisler Rondino on a theme by Beethoven
Waxman Carmen Fantasy
Massenet Meditation from Thais
Khatchaturian Concerto, concert rhapsody
Szymanowski Nocturne and Tarantella
Grieg Sonatas 1 and 3
Short pieces by Debussy, Sarasate, Albeniz, and Vieuxtemps
Rachmaninov Trio Elegiaque
Khrennikov concerto #2

"Kogan , one of the best violinist in Russia... on no !!@not only Russia , but the whole world , yes whole world .
From listeing his record , you can here the Russia violin sound , its very rich sound it will makes you feel its not a violin ,sometimes is just kind of like a viola.
Kogan his technique is also one of the best from i heard , even Heiftez still still worse compare to him , if you dont agree with you , you can go listen the Warmen :carmen fantasy !! try to listen them both , and you will know how crazy kogan is
and musically , its not the music kind is from school , he has his special of music taste , its just really great if you get familiar with him.
Get this Box is really a great idea, its cheap and its has most of the important piece he play !!
dont be haste , just check out and listen. believe me , you will always remember the Master"
