Product Description


Bishops impeccably clear playing fills the big moments with tone without allowing them to be over-rhetorical and in fact rhetoric is less characteristic of him than fluent speech that can when necessary become assertive to the point of brilliance and does, indeed, make his third movement of the Grieg very exciting. His acute sensibility and the mellifluous playing of all orchestral solo passages show us Grieg the nature-poet. And this feeling for mood, for the undertones of reverie, gives the essence of Schumann as Romantic, and in both concertos conductor and soloist are in perfect rapport and the recording engineers have missed nothing. --Gramophone, March 1972

One of the TOP ALBUMS OF 2010 --Sunday Times

Kovacevich(Bishop,then)was already at the height of his powers and these characterful interpretations imbued with Romantic feeling. Performance ***** Recording **** --BBC Music Magazine,Feb'11

One of the best you'll find 4 April 2013
By John J. Puccio - Published on Amazon.com
Since the early Seventies I've been listening mostly to two recordings of the Grieg and Schumann concertos, one by Radu Lupu, with Andre Previn and LSO (Decca or LIM), and this one by Stephen Kovacevich, with Colin Davis and the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Lupu provides the sheer brute strength and Kovacevich adds the poetry. Philips originally recorded Kovacevich, and the company has released it on LP and CD several times. Now in 2010 we get the recording reissued by Newton Classics. It can't hurt.
