“This is one of the most ingratiating, thoughtful, and lyrical performances of the Schumann Piano Concerto that I have ever heard… Levy and his partner, legendary singer turned conductor Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, find a quality of dramatic interplay that is quite magical. The Konzertstück, with its characteristically Schumannesque horn textures, is also delivered with a deeply satisfying sense of flesh and blood. The obscure Schön Hedwig and Zwei Balladen, written for solo piano and speaker, may not engender repeated hearings except for specialized tastes, but are rendered with a magnetic theatricality by Fischer-Dieskau.”
Fanfare, USA

“Daniel Levy recorded these unique pieces with none other than Fischer-Dieskau as his partner! The celebrated baritone also directs the orchestra, and the pianist, in highly distinguished performances of the Concerto in A Minor and the beautiful, but less familiar, Konzertstück op. 92.”
Revue Musicale de Suisse Romande, Switzerland

“An unusual and imaginative Schumann programme presented with imposing interpretative flair.”
Ian Lace, MusicWeb International UK
