Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Schumann was Cortot's favorite composer. Cortot could express Schumann's complex temperament more naturally than other pianists. The concerto on this recording is the second he made and was done in 1934. It was re-recorded because of developments in recording technology. Cortot was the first pianist to record Kreisleriana and his interpretation is still considered by many to be the best.
