 An old favorite March 10, 2014 By Dr. Mitchell Gurk (Spencer, MA) See All My Reviews "My long favorite, often heard Recording of the Schumann: Serkin and Ormandy. Rational and calm, we feel that Serkin gives us all of the music as it was written, and thus is a reference for other more virtuosic experiments, such as Michelangeli." Report Abuse
