Notes and Editorial Reviews

The fourth and last week of Guido Cantelli's second engagement as guest conductor with the New York Philharmonic brought a soloist, Rudolf Serkin, pianist - the first association between two stqars who had not previously made music together. Serkin was scheduled to play the Mozart D minor concerto, K.466 at the Thursday night and Friday afternoon concerts; and the Beethoven First Concerto, Op.15 for the Sunday nationwide broadcast two days later. Happily, the non-broadcast Mozart and the other works on the Thursday/Friday programs were also recorded in the house by the Carnegie Hall Corporatiohn so posterity is blessed with mementos of what turned out to be an exciting collaboration. It transpired that Serkin and his young colleague proved Read more ideally matched tempermentally, playing together again in a memorable 'Emperor' Concerto that following year; their collaboration is presented here in the best possible sound, with extensive notes by Harris Goldsmith. *Not for sale in the USA.

 Is Kissin Serkin's persona ? March 6, 2014 By Peter Lever (Cape Town, South Africa) See All My Reviews "A few months ago I heard the most fantastic recording of the third movement of Beethoven's 1st piano concerto played by Yevgeny Kissin - I thought: "this guy is stunning - all the notes are there and great musicality." Then, lo and hehold, there is this one from 1953 by Rudolf Serkin at the same breathtaking speed and just as clear. Not really at the speed denoted in the score but what a fantastic performance - and this one was LIVE !!!" Report Abuse
