Continuing Success - 1951

"You have to think up names like Rachmaninoff and Horowitz to give an adequate idea of the drive, the vitality, the incisiveness, and the tonal control which Pennario brought to bear upon the concerto. It was much more than mere brilliant playing, though heaven knows it was all of that; it had something of the lean resilience and massive grasp of Rachmaninoff, and it still further suggested that great pianist in the way the tone constantly modulated from an edgeless torrent of sound to passage work of the featheriest lightness."
