These wonderfully musical performances of Mendelssohn's "Songs without Words" by Daniel Barenboim display a pianism of highest order, the noble restraint of which reminds me of the artistry of Artur Rubinstein. Barenboim makes the instrument sing most beautifully and plays some of the most taxing scores with stunning dexterity and fluency. The 70s' stereo recording has very realistic and full sound quality.
