Notes and Editorial Reviews

Backhaus gives us classically clear and musicianly playing in the Schumann concerto, also with some charm.

-- Gramophone [5/1969]

--------------------------

Backhaus gives a highly intelligent performance, weaving his part with that of the orchestra in just the right way for this intimate concerto.

-- Gramophone [1/1963]
