John C Mckelvey
American Record Guide, August 2001

"There is an earlier recorded performance with the LSO under Ronald, but this one is better in all respects. What is more, the sound of the 78-rpm originals is reproduced with breathtaking fidelity, clarity, dynamic range, and lack of distortion...The articulation and passagework in this performance are splendidly clean and colourful.

These recordings exhibit startling realism and sense of occasion and are some of the finest 78-rpm reproductions I've ever heard..."

Bryce Morrison
Gramophone, April 2001

"One of his precious few concerto recordings, this disc shows Cortot at his most beguiling. Mark Obert-Thorn's transfers are exceptional and all lovers of past but ever-present greatness will want this second and final Naxos volume of Cortot's sadly few concerto recordings."

Gary Lemco
Audiophile Audition, April 2001

"Mark Obert-Thorne's transfers from shellacs are quiet and more than passably intimate, as such elevated salon music should be."
