William Steinberg was a superb Tchaikovsky conductor. In 1929, he recorded the Violin Concerto with Bronislaw Huberman, a classic recording. He later would go on to rerecord it with Nathan Milstein. I have LPs by him of the 4th (Command) and 5th (Pickwick) Symphonies, both excellent. This CD offers convincing proof of Steinberg's excellence in this repertoire. The sound engineering is lovely monaural, full and beautifully balanced. In the Symphony, from 1954, Steinberg takes slightly broad tempos that allow the symphonic argument full rein. He doesn't pull phrases about in the Ormandy manner, but builds the drama of the work steadily and convincingly. The big moments are crushing in their intensity. In the Serenade, from 1953, Steinberg produces one of the best ever recordings of this work. His string section plays beautifully, and the structure of each movement is convincingly laid out. The performance has both charm and pathos in the right places. Every one of the Steinberg/Pittsburgh reissues on EMI that I have heard has been very rewarding, and this CD is no exception.

I totally agree with Mr. Saemann's comments from several years ago, but I would only add that I am stunned by the quality of the monural recording and the beauty of the transfer. The performances are impeccable, but this CD is worth acquiring just hear from what the Capitol engineers were producing 50 years ago (it truly puts many digital recordings from the 2000s to shame!). I'm sorry this release and others by Steinberg are again out of print. The "Capitol" series was a wonderful tribute to his art.
