Quality and Quantity

This is it. A collective library of Beethoven's genius, and his close relationship with the intricacies of the piano. Yes, it is seventy bucks, but its also ten hours worth of music, which roughly translates into a dollar for every eight minutes. But, number sense aside, can you really but a price on masterpieces?
