Notes & Reviews:

This spine-tingling account of Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No.1 has never been issued before. It is a 'live' studio recording from 1958 with the Cologne Radio Symphony Orchestra - accompanied by Géza Anda's fellow Hungarian Georg Solti! This historic performance generates enormous electricity between the two artists.

MusicWeb International, 25th June 2013
Although almost sixty years old these two works are heard in reasonably good sound with the Brahms having the slight edge. They will be required listening for those who, like myself, are Anda devotees.

Notes & Reviews:
