Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...Natalia Gutman's recording with Sawallisch and the Philadelphia Orchestra is unique in offering the Symphonic Variations as a very apt one, a good choice for those whose main interest is in the composer rather than the cello. In the Concerto Gutman is at her finest in the poetic moments... Her playing emerges in ravishing delicacy with the second [subject] (track 1, 3'31''). She achieves a rapt poetry at the most delicate pianissimo and without undue slowing... Sawallisch's account of the Symphonic Variations is warmly and strongly characterized..."
-- Edward Greenfield, Gramophone [3/1992]
