Reviews

‘masterly from a technical point of view, and in the main very impressive interpretations. They are of the big, heavy, powerful kind, though usually with plenty of drive where it’s required.’ (Beethoven) Gramophone, December 1959

‘There is a lot of beautiful playing … What I like best about this disc is the marvelous sound’ (Schubert) Gramophone, May 1959
