This review is from: Tchaikovsky: Piano Concerto No.1 / The Nutcracker Suite (Audio CD)
This performance is not to my taste. I found it mannered, erratic and unpleasant. Again and again I found elements of the performance intrusively surprising, especially the 'rubato'. I strongly advocate hearing it before you buy it. Don't assume, as I did, that it will be a solid classic performance. Also, the overall soundscape is muddy, lumpy and just generally unpleasant. One man's meat, but poison for me I am afraid.

you speak harshly...... but i sense you're picking up on a discordant element between the male and female pianists.....

Must agree that the live recording of the Piano Concerto No. 1 sounds very muddy on my system. So bad I had to try it on another, with no improvement. But I found the Nutcracker piano duet is very clear and precise.
