Notes & Reviews:

"Casadesus and Rosbaud, though at first sight a rather unlikely partnership, agree very well on most points and produce an interpretation which is unsensational yet satisfying. The conductor shows extreme care, especially in the tuttis, yet is never unduly austere; in fact the serenity of the Adagio's opening is most beautifully realised. The recording balance is such that woodwind solos can be heard properly over the piano, but surely what is most enjoyable is the refinement, in both concept and execution, of Casadesus's playing." Gramophone Magazine, May 1972
