Comments:Christian Metzger said:

Since I heard Peter Serkin's performance in the eighties in Germany, I always wanted to have a recording. He plays these pieces excellent and compared to other recordings a little fast, but it reminded me of his life performance and is one of my favorite recordings of this piece.
