Notes and Editorial Reviews

Mischa Maisky conveys a strength, majesty and grandeur which reflect the intrinsic nature of these masterpieces.

As is the general case, for most who have fallen in love with this specific music, a favourite version will invariably exist. Of the dozen or so versions in this writer’s collection that of Mischa Maisky, conveying a strength, majesty and grandeur which reflect the intrinsic nature of the original compositions, holds special favour. Maisky has recorded the cycle three times and it is the second, DG 445 373-2, which holds special appeal.
