Reviews

‘The solo playing, the singing and the orchestral playing are all in the highest degree sensitive, and they are all given every chance by a first-class recording. In particular, the piano comes off well.’ Gramophone, April 1956 (Beethoven)

‘Among the better recordings of these masterworks … [Foldes] is favoured with excellent orchestral support and generally first-rate recording.’ High Fidelity, July 1958 (Concertos K453, K467)
