The Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 54 was completed in the year 1845 and is the only piano concerto written by the German Romantic composer Robert Schumann. The work was premiered in Dresden on December 4, 1845. Schumann had earlier worked on several piano concerti: he began one in E-flat major in 1828, from 1829–31 he worked on one in F major, and in 1839, he wrote one movement of a concerto in D minor. None of these works were completed.

Ormandy gets a deft performance from the Philadelphia Orchestra, with just the right touch of plushness that the "Philadelphia Sound" was famous for. The combination is well nigh unbeatable in terms of realizing the many moods of the piece. This was late in the career of the Budapest String Quartet. This teaming with Serkin seems to have summoned from the Quartet the powers of years past. Serkin leads a taut performance and the Quartet responds with fine focus.
Rudolf Serkin – piano Budapest String Quartet. Philadelphia Orchestra Eugene Ormandy – conductor (CBS Masterworks – Great Performances 38). Over the course of his long and illustrious career, Rudolf Serkin came to occupy a niche as an Apollonian interpreter of the music of the First Viennese School, particularly Beethoven. His crisp phrasing and lean tone seemed the epitome of a lofty classical approach, as distinct from the glowing intensity of Horowitz, or the lushness of Arrau. As with most such generalizations, it was an unfairly limiting characterization.
