SCHUMANN/PIANO CONCERTO/Rubinstein, piano /RCA LIVING STEREO Shaded Dog, LSC-2256. Josef Krips, conducting the RCA Victor Orchestra. Lewis Layton: Engineer, John Pfeiffer: Musical Director.
It is a happy circumstance that present-day recording techniques have at last encompassed the difficulties presented by both the faults and virtues of this most recalcitrant of instruments (from the recording viewpoint); that this very disc can project to you the loveliness of Schumann’s work as indeed he never herd it except in his heart; that here, under Artur Rubinstein’s ministration and RCA Victor’s skill and care, is the definitive performance of this noble music.
Anton Rubinstein, to his pupils: ”Forget you are striking the notes; imagine you are singing them.”
