This was another of those albums that looked clean, but was fairly noisy when actually listening to it. After considerable cleanup work, I’m happy to say that it gets TheNightOwl’s seal of approval. Nice warm MLP sound. Enjoy!

Piano Concerto No. 4 In G Major, Opus 58 (conc.)
03 – III. Rondo Vivace
Piano Sonata In E Major, Opus 14, No. 1
06 – I. Allegro
07 – II. Allegretto

Harold Lawrence – musical director
Wilma Cozart – recording supervisor
Robert Eberenz – engineer
George Piros – mastering
Also pressed in mono as MG-50381
Note: The front cover says “Antal Dorati London Symphony” but Dorati is not in the credits. On the CD, which pairs Concerto No 4 with No 5, it lists Dorati as the conductor on No 4 and Skrowaczewski as the conductor on No 5.
Since the CD obviously came out decades after this album, I’m going to assume that the CD has the correct information and that the label on the album here is incorrect.
