This vintage 1972 recording delivers excellent interpretations of these two familiar compositions. However, any purchaser should recognize that they can be considered flawed. Musicially, the Grieg is diminished by horns that seem overly harsh, clashing with the overall beauty of the performance. The Schumann, while musicially sound, is haunted by ambient noise in the recording venue. Most notably, low frequency distractions that divert the attention of critical listeners on good systems. But with these issues aside, both recordings will satisify many.
