"The febrile and unpredictable temperament of the missed Chilean pianist was at the same time his alpha and omega.
But among his most reminded and legendary performances we should name this impressive, radiant and sumptuous version of Schumann's Piano Concerto Op. 54. Obviously the radiant presence in the podium of Victor de Sabata was a decisive factor in what concerns to that winged inspiration and entire recreation of the Romantic mood. De Sabata molded and even pushed the Dionysian rapture of this renowned soloist. And the result could not have been much more fortunate.
With the only exception of the unsurpassable and still reminded version of Ivan Moravec and the Czech Philharmonic in 1976, this enraptured performance should be considered in the second place among the most prominent recordings of this concerto ever made.
And finally we have to Nathan Milstein with a celebrated and well reminded performance of the lyrical Brahms violin Concerto make of this album a first order reference album.
