As beautiful as they are and as wonderful as it is to hear them, one can only regret the inclusion of Rudolf Serkin 's recording of Schubert 's Moments Musicaux on this disc otherwise given to his recordings of Schumann 's Piano Concerto and Introduction and Allegro appassionato with Eugene Ormandy and the Philadelphia Orchestra.
Their inclusion implies two inevitable conclusions: that Serkin 's recording of Schumann 's Introduction and Allegro with Ormandy and the Philadelphia will probably not be reissued and that Serkin 's other Schubert recordings might never be reissued.
This would be a shame. All three of Serkin 's recordings of Schumann 's works for piano and orchestra were easily among the best ever made -- indeed, his recordings of the Introduction and Allegro appassionato and Introduction and Allegro have yet to be bettered -- and together on a single disc they would be unbeatable.
And all Serkin 's Schubert recordings were easily among the best ever made -- indeed, his recording of the late Sonata in A major has never been bettered -- and the more of them that are available, the better. But still, the performances here are so soulful, so inward, so lyrical, and so profound that it would be hard to resist this disc, despite its dire implications.
