 A keyboard great August 11, 2014 By owen  r. (lakewood, CA) See All My Reviews "Dvorak's Piano Concerto is not generally held in the same esteem as his other concertos. In the hand of the great Sviatoslav Richter and the incomparable Carlos Kleiber this work is lifted to a virtuoso level. The Grieg Concerto, with a demon on the keyboard, is among the elite performances. The Schumann is equally great. However, the conductor and orchestra on these latter are not at the same level as the great Mr. Richter. These two SACD's have been remastered since their CD issues in the ''Great Recordings'' series. However their audio quality falls just short of a 5 star rating." Report Abuse
