In my opinion, this astonishing recording of Tchaikovsky`s Piano Concerto No.1 is quite possibly one of the finest versions of ANY piano concerto there is.
There are others which are marvels of technicality, or performances of ideal examples of living poetry.
Argerich`s is incredibly both. I have not yet found any other recording of Tchaikovsky`s piano concerto which rivals this one.
A cornerstone of the very best of classical music.

  1. Thank you so much Rachmaninov. Martha Argerich in Tchaikowsky is like… no I can’t find a metaphore for this. You’re doing a lot of good to many people who may be mute about it but grateful nevertheless. Be blessed.

  2. Thank you so much for it, absolutly and stunningly, beautiful fantasticcccc. And my favorit composer “Pjotr Tchaikowsky”.
    Thank you so much “Rachmaninov”.

  3. Argerich is a Goddess! Though I know she would probably reject the title. Her playing on this recording, with her then husband, Charles Dutoit, is explosive and volcanic. White hot sparks fly between her playing and the orchestra’s. And with the added bonus of the Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture, I cannot dismiss my own speculation that this recording was a genuine expressive manifestation of the special bond between Argerich and Dutoit at this time…A spectacular performance and recording. Thank you Rach from the bottom of my heart for this share.
