Tchaikovsky: Piano Concerto No. 1, Op. 23
Tchaikovsky: Méditation, Op. 72 No. 5 (Encore)
Brahms: Symphony No. 4, Op. 98

'Refreshing performances of these familiar masterpieces.'
'A performance with plenty of fireworks, but the right kind for a change: power, virtuosity and drama for sure, but extreme contrasts, fine detail and moments of high intimacy too.'
'Temirkanov produced real drama here, ... a powerful finish to this taut reading, one of the strongest I’ve heard in a long time.'
