Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

Dame Myra Hess was admired particularly for her Schumann, which was both authoritative and sensitive. Nothing is ever overstated, and she is completely inside Schuman’s poetic world. Virtuosity and display are bi-products of her dedication to the letter and spirit of the score. Her rubato seems completely right and tempi are judged perfectly. The recording of the Piano Concerto (in the 78 era, the preferred choice of most collectors) is a little dry, but the performance is fresher than her mono account with Rudolf Schwarz and the Philharmonia. Decent transfers.
