Deze plaat is besproken in The Gramophone van mei 1927:
The German dances are slight enough, but happily turned off. It is interesting to compare these with the dances of one who had a good deal of Schubert's spirit, and some of his tricks - Dvorak. Schubert can play the little gentleman better, but in music of this type tugs at our coat-toals with a more ingratiating smile. We feel Schubert is a little bit too formal for our perfect pleasure. The recording does ample justice to the debonair music.
