This specially priced 4-CD set combines the romantic spirit and dignified musicality of Cuban-born pianist Jorge Bolet, who made many celebrated recordings as a Decca artist. He was to many a cult figure who brought a rare spontaneity and warmth to a broad range or repertoire, including popular favourites and dazzlingly virtuosic encores.

The art of Jorge Bolet is celebrated in this set which is released to mark the 20th anniversary of his death [16 October 1990].

Booklet includes an appreciation of Jorge Bolet by piano specialist Jeremy Siepmann
