backed by some of Vienna's finest
I never indicated a preference for squeaky clean cd quality recordings. Although this was digitally taped recently, it is the performance behind the occasional pops and deep-in-the-audience perspective that commands involvement.

Piano Concerto No.2 in G Minor, Op. 16 (1912-13)
1. Andantino--Allegretto--Tempo 1
2. Scherzo: Vivaca
3. Intermezzo:Allegro moderato

Yefim Bronfman, Piano
The recording attendee (thank you!!!) notes, "Another beautiful concert with the Vienna Phil...The audience was stunned into silence at the end and
did not begin to applaud until the maestro turned around to face us."
