Like the previous reviewers, I agree with the sentiments of this being the top modern recording of the piano concertos- the orchestra well controlled and sounding excellent under Chailly, the interpretation by Freire among the very best on record with a great balance of lyricism, power and sheer athleticism.
There is so much to recommend about the recording, but as with all recordings there are a few little niggles. Although the sound quality is first rate, the balance between piano and orchestra is sometimes favoured too much with the orchestra. This only detracts slightly from the listening experience and the same can be said with a couple of slips and at times, weak playing.
All in all, an excellent interpretation and recording of the two piano concertos, and very highly recommended, not just here, but by Gramophone and the other reviewers. Worth buying without hesitation.
