Serkin's devotion to this work spanned the decades. He recorded it on 78RPM disc with Reiner in Pittsburgh. If I recall correctly a monaural lp with Ormandy, and then this stereo remake which did not, for whatever reason, remain long in the catalogue, and finally his most famous recording, in Cleveland, with Szell. While I am not going to take any cudgel to that highly praised disc, and would note in passing that I believe his version with Szell of the 2nd Concerto to be Serkin's most successful, I strongly endorse this Serkin-Ormandy collaboration. I find the great pianist at one with Ormandy and the Philadelphia Orchestra ideal in weight and tone. The balance of piano and orchestra, problematic in this thewy work, has been ideally captured by the recording engineers. The stereo sound comes up freshly minted in this fine digital remastering. I rank this recording of the piece second only to the famous Rubinstein/Reiner/CSO disc, and, along with the Katchen/Monteux/LSO, one of my 3 favorite, indispensable recordings of the work. The coupled Schumann is splendid, and adds to the great appeal of this disc. Highly recommended.
