Tchaikovsky's First Piano Concerto, one of the great warhorses of the repertoire, has been recorded hundreds of times, but the most compelling account I have ever heard is this one, with pianist Philippe Entremont and Leonard Bernstein conducting the New York Philharmonic. Bernstein and Entremont together capture the epic grandeur of this work like few others have, truly relishing all the grand Romantic moments. Entremont pulls it all off with no apparent difficulty, presenting even the most difficult passages like he was born to play them. The remastered sound (24-bit, as opposed to the usual Sony 20-bit) is very good. The Tchaikovsky is coupled with a first-rate performance of the Dvorak Piano Concerto, with a different soloist. Although there are many classic and new accounts of the Tchaikovsky (Argerich/Berlin PO and the recent Matsuev/St. Petersberg PO), the one I keep coming back to is this Entremont performance. Buy it without hesitation--it's worth twice the price it costs.
