Reviews:

“From Ashkenazy, every page declares Rachmaninov’s nationality, his indelibly Russian nature … Prévin works hand in glove with his soloist … the product of the greatest musical sympathy.” GRAMOPHONE on the Ashkenazy-Previn Rachmaninov cycle

“The complete Ashkenazy/Solti set of Beethoven concertos in one word is superb. The range of Ashkenazy’s tone is tremendous … Sir Georg Solti’s accompaniment is right on the spot and his Chicago orchestra is recorded with a fine depth of sound" GRAMOPHONE on the Ashkenazy-Solti Beethoven cycle
