Review

The Philips recordings give a vivid close-up of the brilliant orchestral playing, the result is something very exciting indeed. If you want to be knocked over by the symphony, this is the version to get. --Gramophone

Format: Audio CD
This must be the best version I have heard so far and that's includes both performances.

Bernstein's captivating performance behind the pianoforte, in Shostakovich 2'nd piano concerto, is absolutely stunning - is has everything - soul, dynamics, insight, sensitivity, energy and drive!!!

Bernstein knows where it's at and even though it is an older recording, the sound it really good.
(I have to confess that I don't the own CD version - I have it on vinyl) But just wanted to recommend this recording to anyone who cares - this is marvellous!

I first heard this recording of Shostakovitch's 2nd Piano Concerto when it came out around 1960. I put the LP on my record player and was enthralled with it from the first note till the last, especially the first movement. The second movement is slow and lovely, poignant, and the third is again lively. A marvelous wedding of the genius of both the composer and the performer.
