This review is from: Grieg & Schumann: Piano Concertos (Audio CD)
These are brilliant performances of much recorded (and frequently coupled) works. Andsnes plays beautifully, of course, and has much that is special to say about these works. These are inflammable performances but they are not barnstormers - they are very musical accounts that are quite simply special. Probably this is a top recommendation for this coupling and for each of these pieces. But do, please, listen to the Pires/Abbado version of the Schumann too: it is work with many faces and Andsnes shows you many of them but Pires shows you many new ones! I need both.
