About

“Splendid performances by Serkin and Ormandy of the Mendelssohn concertos, with plenty of attack from them both and a really wonderful, fiery interpretation of the D minor's opening movement. This is how these concertos should be played, yet still - as here - with delicacy as well as brilliance. Here is a great pianist ... who makes the most of both (concertos).” - Gramophone

1960 & 1964 recordings
