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]

 Outstanding Recording April 25, 2017 By david spencer (nelson, lancashire) See All My Reviews "Very pleased that this recording became available again. I first heard it nearly 50 years ago, as a 21st birthday present! The recording quality is excellent, and Backhaus gives his usual authoritative performance,just the right mix of sensitivity and technical strength. Excellent service from ArkivMusic, will definitely use them again." Report Abuse
