 Favorite perf./underrated work August 31, 2016 By michael gomez See All My Reviews "At first the slightly dated recorded sound might put you off...for this recording I suggest you play it at a slightly louder volume than others. I like the fact that both Firkusny and Somogyi have close ties with this piece and the reading really is quite natural, unforced, and highly poetic." Report Abuse
