Which Gulda set is it?
Licensed from Universal Music Operations Ltd
Originally released on Amadeo
Recording: Austria, 1967, Amadeo.
This is, in my opinion, an excellent set (especially if you are interested
in the earlier sonatas). It typically gets very enthusiastic reviews in the
various Beethoven sonata threads that have appeared over the years in this
newsgroup. If you are only going to invest in one traversal of the sonatas,
this would not be a poor choice (although I think you can do better in some
of the later sonatas).
As a side note, I'm glad this set is now available cheaply as I paid quite a
bit to get it from Germany a few years ago.
