Notes & Reviews:

"In 1965 37-year old Leon Fleisher, stricken with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, lost the use of his right hand and his career as one of the outstanding pianists of his generation...Szell had a strong affinity for Concerto 1 and left five recordings of the work, the one at hand being the third...Fleisher's is one of the more memorable recordings of this work, powerfully projected and brilliantly executed. The 1958 sonics sound almost brand new..." -Linkowski, ARG
