This disc comes as a reminder of Cyril Smith's outstanding qualities... He gives a sparkling account of Dohnányi's Nursery Variations... Smith re-recorded the [Rachmaninov] concerto after hearing the composer's swift 1939-40 version... Smith's version is more accurate. [The] transfers are admirably clear and natural sounding. IPQ (UK)
