London Symphony Orchestra
On the occasion of the first Western-engineered recordings made in the USSR, soloist and orchestra plainly challenged each other to the limit and (the producers) brilliantly captured the warmly romantic and chimerical interpretation which resulted. Solo playing...scintillating.. (Piano Concerto No.1)
the simple opening benefits from the extra warmth, and Janis lets the theme unwind with appealing spontaneity, and in the great closing climax to the finale, the passion is built up not too hurriedly- to the greatest possible tension....two favourite Preludes most persuasively played. (Piano Concerto No.3)
