I am glad that there are a few people who concur with me that this is the
best recording of Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1. After hearing this
recording from Martha Agerich, I will always try to look around to see if
she has recorded a particular piano concerto which I am seeking. I have a
few now, but hope to collect more. Does anyone has any opinions about her
greatest recordings, or the worst ones that we have to avoid?
