American Record Guide, May/June 2016
Cyril Smith (1909-74) had performed these works under the direction of Rachmaninoff and Dohnanyi, and indeed plays with great style. This is the second of the two recordings of the work by Smith and Sargent, the first having been made with the Liverpool Philharmonic in 1945. The present recordings were made in 1948, 1953, and 1956.
