Description
Made at the height of Lympany's career, these 1960s recordings include her debut concerto (Mendelssohn's First) as well as Liszt's Second, Henry Litoff's Fourth, and Manuel de Falla's Nights in the Gardens of Spain.

"A glorious reminder of Dame Moura in her prime. The Litolff could hardly be more vivacious. How she revels in the scintillating tracery of Falla's sumptuous and indeed unique nocturne, combining an immaculate taste with an exhilarating joie de vivre. In the Liszt she rides every pianistic storm with effortless mastery. This is a performance of superb authority. All the recordings have come up excellently and the booklet is lavishly illustrated."—Gramophone

"An artist who had temperament, a beautiful sound, and a world-class (but never show-off) technique. She used fast tempos, took total command when she played with orchestra…. In short, she was a sensitive musician as well as a spectacular pianist. These well-transferred recordings … show her at her best—which means aristocratic lyricism, with plenty of power when needed. In the Liszt A-Major Concerto I like her unruffled delivery, seamless melodic flow, and her avoidance of fake heroics…. In the Falla Noches Lympany is quiet and atmospheric, playing it very much in the de Larrocha manner. As for the Mendelssohn, it lies beautifully in the Lympany fingers, and we get a fleet, classically oriented performance."—Harold C. Schonberg, American Record Guide

"Lympany reaches for scintillation and bravura. The Falla has a fluid, luxuriant sensuousness that rivals de Larrocha and Casadesus."—Audiophile Audition
