Tchaikovsky–The Music for Piano & Orchestra

Jerome Lowenthal on piano and the London Symphony Orchestra perform Concertos no. 1, 2, 3, and Concert Fantasy. Concerto no. 1 is very familiar, no. 2 is not familiar with American audiences according to the liner notes, so worth playing. These are passionate, virtuoso works generally long in length (14 mins. Movement 2 of Concerto no. 2 is particularly lovely (“Slavic seduction” according to the pianist).
