 Wrong recoding date? January 8, 2017 By F. Berger (Baltimore, MD) See All My Reviews "Although the Zak performance of Prokofiev's 2nd concerto is one of the best, I suspect it was recorded in 1951 and is the same one released by Praga. Would certainly be interested to hear from anyone who can corroborate or refute." Report Abuse
