With nearly 450 Tchaikovsky First Concerto recordings available on different CDs currently, is another really needed? In this case, the answer is an enthusiastic "yes." Listening to this former Van Cliburn Competition Gold Medalist play leaves no doubt that here is an artist of rare talent.

In the Prokofiev, his articulation and phrasing, precision and power, merit the highest praise.
