Re: CH's review of Neumann's Dvorak cycle - a very minor correction

In his review of Neumann's digital Dvorak cycle Hurwitz says: "His principal weakness seems to have been a sort of stiffness that could on occasion paralyze his ability to make the music flow". It is clear that he is referring to Neumann generally since he goes on to say that the Dvorak cycle is not affected by this weakness. As a result of chasing this up I've now read Hurwitz's enthusiastic review of the analogue cycle, where he makes no reference to this general criticism of Neumann's work. As far as I remember I've never read Hurwitz's review of Neumann's Mahler
