"Schumann: Piano trio no. 1 in D minor" (Vinyl)
A sturdy, gold label Columbia masterworks LP commemorating a summer performance of Schumann's piano trio in D minor.
Often times I'm underwhelmed by Casals' recordings, but I'll attribute that as much to the primitive recording technology as I will to Maestro Casals' musicianship.
This recording, however, was masterfully done. The performance is captured and the energy sizzles. As seldom as I listen to these recordings, I should be proud to possess several of these recordings. They are truly historical records of one of the early 20th century's great musical figures.
