“Cliburn’s easygoing line and tendency toward expansive phrasing come alive in the outer movement’s slower episodes and throughout the central movement . . . Reiner’s dovetailed accompaniments carry Cliburn like a baby, and the Chicago Symphony’s principal winds particularly stand out.” — Classics Today

Fritz Reiner leads the legendary Van Cliburn and the forces of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in two of the most enduring piano concertos in the repertoire: Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto and Rachmaninov’s lamenting Piano Concerto No. 2.
