Phillips' Great Pianists of the 20th Century issue has gotten a lot of publicity in the ten or so years since it has been released. In a musical niche suffering from falling revenues, it was a decent seller. But it left many connoisseurs disappointed, as the quality was limited to the fancy packaging.
It's useful to contrast the Phillips issue with BMG's 1999 reissue of Arthur Rubinstein's complete recordings. The Rubinstein cycle was done the right way, meaning that the recordings were newly remastered from the best available sources, accurate documentation on recording dates and locations was provided, and the liner notes were perceptive. Sadly, this is not the case with the Great Pianists reissue, all the more surprising because Phillips is a well regarded Classical label, whereas BMG (formerly RCA) has long been thought of as a dinosaur.
The documentation in this series is slipshod and often plain inaccurate. On the Paderewski set, the performance of Liszt's La Leggierezza, is not actually by Paderewski. Instead, Phillips has included the performance by Benno Moiseiwitsch (which is also in their Moiseiwitsch volume). The liner notes also claim the piece includes a coda composed by Moiseiwitsch, when in fact it was composed by Leschetizky. Both volumes dedicated to Alfred Cortot provide erroneous recording dates for Schumann's Kreisleriana and Debussy's preludes (Kreisleriana was actually an outtake that Cortot rejected, but at least Phillips had the decency to withdraw and reissue the Schumann with Cortot's approved version). For the Hoffman volume, you're better off getting the Marston set (from which the Phillips volume was ripped off)
