Annotation

Packaged as a 1cm thick 276 page book and a jewel cased double CD set (barcoded 730099553728). Discogs images.

Interesting that this release has no page in the Naxos catalogue between 8.550535-36 and 8.550539, unlike the 2nd expanded edition (8.555319-20 ISBN 9-6263-4210-2), which has different tracks.
