Moved to tears? Well so was I !
on 3 September 2008
There has been many competent readings of this challenging concerto just as there has been a few exceptionally good readings but David Helfgott approaches this work with all the finesse of an elephant on speed! A truly awful performance that has to be heard to be believed. Like the previous reviewers wife, I was almost reduced to tears, tears of dispair!
For a more enjoyable experience look out for Evgeny Kissin, Vladimir Askenazy and Moura Lympany performances.
