"turn to his 1959 live recording with the USSR Symphony under Kyrill Kondrashin and you might as well be listening to a completely different pianist....the solo playing has a headstrong, easy virtuosity that provides maximum contrast with the later account's equally arresting but rather more affected personality [Melodiya, Svetlanov]. In fact the two Gilels performances are about as different from each other as both are (in overall style) from Richter's classically integrated performance of the First Concerto." - Gramophone
Recorded: Moscow, June 1950 (Op.19 no.6); Prague Spring Festival, 1954 (Concerto no.1); Radio Moscow, 23 December 1959 (Concerto no.2)
