An ace classical piano man since his 1962 debut, Barnard has spent a lot of time in Oz over the years and unless you are a hard core classical music junkie, he might not have crossed your radar yet. This set takes him on a history of classical music through his eyes from Bach to present, mixing previously recorded material with new material for a real treat of a career-spanning omnibus. Very much a player you should be better acquainted with, Barnard’s odyssey is a trip well worth taking with him. A marvellous collection.
