[EMI CDC 47713 (Nos. 1 and 2); 47714 (Nos. 3 and 4); and 47619 (No. 5, with additional solo works)] Reissued on Warner Classics 29511. Near the end of his life Szell and his orchestra recorded these works for EMI, with Emil Gilels as the soloist. There is both a wonderful sense of consistency and a powerful undertow to these readings, in which the Russian pianist’s masculine approach to the solos was perfectly complemented by the conductor’s dramatically chiseled accompaniments. – Ted Libbey, author of The NPR Guide to Building a Classical CD Collection. Reissued on Warner Classics 29511.
