Notes & Reviews:

Recorded live in concert, April 29th, 1980 at the Julliard Theater Nadia Reisenberg's first major American appearance was in 1922 as the featured pianist in Panderewski's "polish Fantasy" in a performance praised by the composer himself who was in the audience. Reisenberg made history with her never before attempted feat of playing all the Mozart Piano Concerti in a weekly, coast-to-coast radio series. For the last thirty-five years of her life, chamber music gave her the greatest personal satisfaction. In the 1950s and 60s, she appeared with the Budapest Quartet on numerous occasions, and among many memorable concerts, she played all Beethoven's Cello-Piano Sonatas with Joseph Schuster, then first cellist of the New York Philharmonic. In 1980, at age 76, she joined the Juilliard Quartet at thelibrary of Congress for the Mendelssohn and Faure works heard on this release.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
The ensemble here is impeccable in all respects. She plays with easy assurance and style. We are lucky to have this concert available and so well-recorded. Producer Robert Sherman has also included material from the pianist's 1954 recordings on the Westminster label. The three Rachmaninoff selections and the Moussorgsky Pictures at an Exhibition demonstrate Reisenberg's reputation as a respected interpreter of Russian music. Although I've always been partial to Horowitz's Moussorgsky, I find Reisenberg's reading just as effective, without any of Horowitz's "improving" additions.
