"Impressively remastered, spectacular in its realism, with well-defined detail, superb warmth and body, and fine perspective."

"It is good to be reminded of du Pré's vivid, intense and joyful music-making" wrote Gramophone of this pairing of cello concertos by Schumann and Saint-Saëns. "[The Schumann] has that kind of spontaneous freedom of line that made her account of the Elgar so famous. Her delicacy of response in the slow movement is matched by a romantic flair which carries the outer movements along so admirably. Barenboim directs a sympathetic accompaniment, following her subtle manipulation of rubato with complete understanding."
