"Solomon was a master, with a soft unassuming touch and great sonority, but one can hardly tell it from this early performance, so poorly recorded originally that no transfer has been able to make it sound decent. Still, it's Solomon. There's a later version of the Tchaikov. 1st, with Dobrowen, on an EMI Tchaikov. box, expensive even as a cut-out. I like the performance more with Hartry, although the sound is much better on the Dobrowen. Also, there's lots of great Solomon on APR and Testament, and in the Philips 2CD set in the Great Pianists series -- Chopin solos, Brahms concertos, Beethoven concertos and sonatas -- and more. UPDATE 2007: An excellent transfer of the Solomon/Hartry Tchaik. 1st is now available on the Naxos Historical label (8.110680)."
