    A London ‘Blueback’.
    BTW, does anybody have an opinion as how this sounds compared to the original on Decca?
    not heard a decca but speakers corner & 45rpm ORG are both very good

    It scarcely even qualifies as music...

    I'm not sure that Pletnev's reorchestrated chamber orchestra version of the Concertos improves upon the originals, but Trifonov certainly plays them and the other pieces beautifully. Good sound. (Yes, I'm playing a CD--it was a "thank you" gift from my local NPR station for supporting them.)

    Yeah, that Kantorow has some hair-raising playing on it, especially "The Firebird" transcription. Trifonov has at least two live performances of it on YouTube.

    A 50 minute 12-tone Piano Concerto— what’s not to love? Actually, I like it very much. Its forbidding difficulties for musicians and audience alike prevent it from being played much, which is a shame since it is such a powerful piece.

    I received this near-mint copy in the mail today and listened to No.7-9. Sublime!

    I received this iconic LP yesterday, but it has far too many loud ticks and pops despite 2 thorough cleanings. I’m returning it and will search for another copy that is truly “near mint.” Has anyone heard the DG reissue? Does the derivation from a digital copy hurt the sound?
