The combination of Sir Colin Davis and Kovacevich (originally released on Philips with the Schumann Piano Concerto) have been described as more civilized than, say, Richter or Fleischer, and certainly Davis eased into a staid conductor as he aged, but I do find this performance thrilling and well-timed.

Opera Orchestra, and this recording by Stephen Kovacevich with Colin Davis and the BBC Symphony Orchestra.

Performer: Stephen Kovacevich. Orchestra: BBC Symphony Orchestra. Conductor: Sir Colin Davis. Composer: Edvard Grieg, Robert Schumann. Audio CD (July 10, 2001). This disc, first published in 1971, presents an early collaboration between the young Kovacevich and Colin Davis. Almost immediately it became recognised as a most desirable LP offering a wonderful combination of freshness and maturity-possibly a perfect combination. The recording, although good, was just inclined to be a little muddy even when played on good turntables with top quality cartridges.
