George Szell and the Cleveland Orchestra — The Forgotten Recordings receives a five-star review and the Historical Critic’s Choice distinction in the June 2021 BBC Music Magazine:
“…it’s fascinating to hear the partnership when their much-vaunted precision was well in progress, if not immaculate. … The stereo recordings… show how far the orchestra had come… a masterclass in pacing, with some beautiful wind playing. Best of all are Schumann’s Fourth Symphony, which gets the kick it needs, especially in the scherzo and finale, and Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite, colourful and balletic.”—Martin Cotton, BBC Music Magazine
