Notes and Editorial Reviews

...Another record from the [mid-1960s] provides a familiar coupling of the Grieg and Schumann Piano Concertos. Géza Anda gives a strong, ardent and poetic performance of the Schumann; in the Grieg his tempos are a shade deliberate at times, but his playing is sensitive and beautifully phrased. The BPO under Kubelik provide sympathetic support and the recording sounds well.

-- Gramophone [7/1986]
