In a survey of more than 60 versions of Schumann’s Fantasie for IPQ, Ates Orga wrote of this version: Benefiting from a fabulously voiced instrument, [this is] an overwhelming experience, outstandingly recorded in a golden acoustic. Remarkable... My recommendations, chronologically, are Backhaus, Gieseking, de Lara, Arrau (1959), Sofronitzky (1959), Richter (1960), Argerich (1966), Richter (1979), Bolet, Hough, Perl, Fiorentino (1996). Pushed to choose just one, it’d have to be Fiorentino. IPQ (UK)
