It's no accident that this is one of the best-selling classical recordings of all time.... Simply stated...this is one hell of an exciting performance [of the Tchaikovsky concerto].... It is a poetic, explosive, lyrical, and deeply humane interpretation that no recording of the past thirty begins to match.

This is an incredible album. An exceptionally moving first album by Van Cliburn with one of the most beautiful piano concertos ever written. It is a must have for any student of music or piano. You will play it over and over.
